Dream to coach Italy: Cannavaro

Rome, May 2 (IANS) Italy’s 2006 FIFA World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro has said it is a dream for him to coach the national football side.

“I knew the Azzurri shirt for 15 years. I know very well what it means to be part of the national team. Coaching it would be a dream for anyone. It would be nice,” Cannavaro was quoted as saying by football-italia.net on Monday.

The 42-year-old 2006 World Player of the Year has already coached sides like Guangzhou Evergrande and Al-Nassr.
