Italy’s defensive legend Fabio Cannavaro could soon swing the coaching scepter in his home country. The 2006 world champion has attracted the interest of Serie B side Benevento Calcio.
After retiring as a player at Indian club Bengal Tuskers in the 2011/12 season, the 49-year-old took his first coaching job at UAE club Al-Ahli in the 2013/14 season. The path led via Saudi Arabia to China, where he last stood on the sidelines for Guangzhou Evergrande from 2017/18 to 2021/22.
The simple Ballon D’Or winner is currently looking for a job, but according to information from the “Gazzetta dello Sport” he could be at Table 13. of the second Italian league. The sports newspaper reports that Benevento President Oreste Vigorito wants to meet Cannavaro for talks on Monday, so head coach Fabio Caserta is to be relieved of his duties.
