Marcello Lippi has resigned as coach of Italy after leading his country to a fourth World Cup title.

Despite widespread calls for him to stay on at the helm after Italy's win over France on penalties, Lippi has decided the time is right to quit.

best way to go if he took them to the euro's he would be expected to win and the pressure would be huge

now he has numerous scuddettos a champions leagu and a world cup to go along with a few italian cups.

does anyone think he has his eye in for the united job which could become vacant in less than 12 months according to opinion

Out on a high note - and why not?

I actually think this is the righ decision - he has proven his talent, and can now sit back and wait for a lucrative role in club football.

He has nothing to prove now, so he should be allowed to enjoy himself.

Thank you so much Marcello!! <ale>

I heard he would be right hand man to Fergie and then eventually take over, but this cant be true as I cant see him being right hand man to somebody he is currently above.

Can't beat going out at the top. Reputation is kept intact. Thats what Fergie should have done after 99.

I think he should stay in Italy now, maybe manage one of the lesser clubs there.

This world cup is a complete drama! Forget about sports!

News: ''France has complained to World Cup winner Italy about a right-wing senator's racist comments that the defeated French team was made up of "blacks, Muslims and communists", the Italian media reported on Tuesday.

Racism has already threatened to cloud Italy's victory, with reports that Italian defender Marco Materazzi provoked French star Zinedine Zidane, the son of Algerian immigrants, by calling him a "terrorist". Materazzi denies making such comments.

There was no such denial from Roberto Calderoli of the Northern League, who lost a ministerial post in a centre-right government earlier this year for wearing a T-shirt with cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad offensive to Muslims.

As the victorious Azzurri returned to a heroes' welcome in Rome on Monday, Calderoli celebrated it as a "political victory" over a mixed-race French team.

Italy had "beat a team which, in the quest for results, sacrificed its own identity by selecting blacks, Muslims and communists", the senator said, in comments that were rejected by members of Italy's new centre-left coalition government.

Italian newspapers La Stampa and Corriere della Sera quoted a letter of protest from French ambassador Yves Aubin de La Messuziere to the Italian Senate, saying: "Such unacceptable and despicable comments can only foment hatred."

"France is proud of a team whose members are all its sons, whatever their origins or religion," he wrote, adding that some of the French players insulted by Calderoli played in Italian teams "where they are very popular".''

STILL THE BEST??? dO ANY OF YOU KNOW THE HISTORY OF ZIDANE? BEAR IN MIND HE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED IN THIS TOURNAMENT!

Watch it once again and turn on your speakers??

What a ferocious Glaswegian Kiss for the captain at the WC Final??? Shame on him!

How can lip experts even read their lips if they cannot hear i mean they do not even know what language either players were speaking. All that came out clearly was Zidanes headbutt, so shame on him!

I'm surprised at that news, just the other day Lippi was saying how he had 15 years of management ahead of him....obviously he didn't mean the national side then.

I wish McLaren would do us the honour of the same thing! lol (sorry I can't help it, I have no faith!)

"Plus now he can prepare his defense and explain exactly how Juventus won trophies while he was managing them ( match fixing, doping etc....)

Good riddance, the guy is a gangster, not a proper manager ...."



Very intelligent analysis......for being a French

Matchfixing must be the reason why Lippi got Juventus to three Champions League finals, winning one and losing two....

The gangster is not Lippi but Zidane - what a thug!
