Italy don’t need me, says Miccoli

Palermo captain Fabrizio Miccoli has admitted that he’s unlikely to take part in Euro 2012 for Italy. “I’m not needed.”

The former Juventus forward has been linked with a recall to the squad as national boss Cesare Prandelli struggles to find answers in attack.

However, after he was again omitted from the squad for this week’s 1-0 friendly loss to America, he doesn’t expect to be wearing the Italy shirt again while Prandelli is in charge.

“A squad has already been formed,” the 32-year-old told Sky Sport Italia ahead of Palermo’s match with Milan.

“The Coach has made his decisions and it is only right that his ideas are respected. I don’t think Prandelli needs me.”

Miccoli has won 10 caps for Italy, scoring two goals, in his short international career.
