Italy sack Ventura, target Ancelotti

Italy sack Ventura, target Ancelotti

"From today, Gian Piero Ventura is no longer the Coach of the Italian National Team", Tavecchio said in a statement on the FIGC website.

The Azzurri are on the hunt for a new head coach after sacking Giampiero Ventura following their failure to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

His potential successor Ancelotti is yet to manage at global level having taken charge of eight different clubs during his 22-year managerial career, winning the Champions League three times.

After failing to take Italy to the 2018 World Cup, the 69-year-old defiantly refused to step down despite widespread calls for him to resign, leading FIGC president Carlo Tevecchio to terminate his contract on Wednesday.

The Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) has sacked coach Gian Piero Ventura after the Azzurri failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades.

"We are considering big names for the role of coach", he promised.

Ancelotti is seen as the frontrunner, as the 58-year-old is free since being sacked by Bayern Munich at the end of September.

'My objective is to win the Russian league title'.

And Mancini, the former Manchester City and Inter Milan tactician, has emerged as an early candidate to succeed him along with compatriots Carlo Ancelotti, Fabio Capello and Fabio Cannavaro.

Tommasi, the first to exit the meeting, says "Tavecchio told us that he doesn't intend to resign".

"There doesn't appear to be the mood for change", the former Roma midfielder told journalists.

"We need credible elections, with new people; we won't solve the problems of Italian football by sacking the coach".
