World Cup-winning former Italy coach Marcello Lippi has expressed his interest in managing in the Premier League.

The 63-year-old, who stepped down from his second spell as Azzurri coach after last summer's World Cup, would like to ply his trade in England and admits Chelsea would be an attractive proposition.


Tuesday's Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester United turned up the pressure on Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti, with the London club 11 points behind the Red Devils in the Barclays Premier League. Lippi said on Radio Mana Mana: "I miss coaching - this is normal."

He added: "My years have been intense and rewarding. There were also disappointments, but this is absolutely normal because you cannot always win.

"In this respect I can only be satisfied, but the desire to do my job is still there.

"The future? I'd love to coach in the Premier League. Chelsea? It would be nice, but also to lead a national team would not hurt."
