Italy boss Prandelli resigns after their World Cup exitWednesday, June 25, 2014 by Talksport
Italy head coach Cesare Prandelli has resigned after their World Cup exit.
The Azzurri needed just a point to progress to the knockout stages from their final Group D clash with Uruguay but, in a controversial match, they were beaten 1-0 thanks to Diego Godin’s late goal.
Prandelli announced at his post-match press conference: "I talked to the president of the federation and gave my resignation.
"The technical set-up didn't work, and I take all responsibility for that.
"Something has changed since my contract was renewed. I don't know why. I chose a certain technical plan and that's why I'm resigning - because it did not work."
