Italy to appoint new national football coach in 2018

Italia will appoint a new national coach for its football team in 2018 after it announced it had sacked the country’s top coach last week.

It will also replace its coach in the national team. 

Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Maurizio Sarri will make the announcement at a press conference in Milan on Tuesday.

It is the latest twist in the saga of the national football team, which is still in the midst of the Euro 2016 qualifiers. 

Last week, Sarri said the national squad would not field any players from the country, a move that has sparked controversy in Italy. 

A day earlier, the FIGC board had agreed to replace Sarri with Carlo Ancelotti, who had led the team to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.

The national team will play its home matches at the Parc del Mar, home of the Paraamo della Libertà, in May 2019, a month before the final.

The federation announced last week that it was suspending the national championship due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, which has seen more than 2,300 people killed since mid-April.

The announcement came amid mounting concerns about the future of the countrys top football team.

A number of clubs in Italy have announced they are planning to move abroad to replace the national players, a step that is likely to lead to a further cut of players. 

The announcement comes after the Italian Football Federation announced on Monday it was withdrawing the 2018 squad from Euro 2016, citing the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the country.

The FIGC’s national championship will go ahead, but will be played at a different venue and with a different format to that of Euro 2020, which will take place in March 2019. 

Withdrawal of the 2018 national team from Euro 2020 in 2019 was seen as a sign of a worsening crisis, with many feeling it was not enough.
