Fabio Cannavaro, a great player of the Italian national team and several Serie A clubs, has turned to coaching. He took the reins of Benevento in Italy in September 2022 and was dismissed in February 2023. A few weeks after his departure, he confided to Il Mattino that he would be ready to come back if he was called. He also gives his motives and the reasons for his failure.
“Yes, because I’ve been coaching for 10 years, but the other day, talking with Marco Borriello, I explained to him that 4 months in Italy is equivalent to 4 years abroad. The situation was not easy, I knew it. The regret is that in October we knew what we needed but nothing happened in January. Even today, the team is still struggling to score goals. But I’m still their number one fan, I really hope they can save themselves,” said the world champion.
