Italy coach Marcello Lippi says he has not yet decided what he will do after this summer’s World Cup.
It is widely assumed that the experienced coach will step down from his position with the national side, possibly to take the reins at a Serie A club.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) are keen for the matter to be resolved before they head for South Africa, but Lippi refuses to make a commitment.
“I have not said that I’ll leave yet,” he told Sky Italia.
“I have not said what I will do after the World Cup.
“We are still three months away from the World Cup at the moment and I am focused on doing my job. Once everything is sorted, then we will talk about the future.”
