MILAN, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Pierluigi Casiraghi has left his
job as coach of the Italy Under-21 side by mutual consent after
the failure to reach next year's European Championship, the
Italian Football Federation said in a statement on Wednesday.
Italy lost a play-off against Belarus last week to also miss
out on the London 2012 Olympics and the former Azzurri striker
has paid the price after four years in charge.
Former national team coach Arrigo Sacchi, now in charge of
youth development at the federation after Italy's World Cup flop
exposed the lack of emerging talent, will choose a successor
with former Lazio coach Davide Ballardini among the favourites.
