Italy boss Prandelli resigns after their World Cup exit

Wednesday, 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."
