MILAN - Former Italy World Cup-winning
coach Marcello Lippi has been contacted about taking over
Ukraine and could watch Wednesday's friendly against
Switzerland, Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Sunday.
Lippi, who steered the Azzurri to glory in 2006, has been
out of work since Italy were dumped out of June's World Cup as
holders in the group stage.
However, the 62-year-old said recently he was ready to
return to coaching but played down speculation he might become a
director of former club Juventus.
Lippi and the Ukraine football federation, which is jointly
hosting Euro 2012 with Poland, could not be immediately reached
