Italy change U-20 and U-19 Coaches

Italy have named Daniele Franceschini as the new Under-20 Coach, with Alberto Bollini taking over the Under-19 team.

The various youth levels of the Nazionale have been shaken up this summer with Luigi Di Biagio leaving the Under-21 post, to be replaced by former Under-20 Coach Paolo Nicolato.

In turn, Nicolato is replaced at the Under-20 level by Franceschini, who steps up after two seasons on the Under-18 bench.

The new Under-19 Italy boss is former Lecce, Salernitana and Modena Coach Bollini.
