KRAKOW, Poland (AP) – Only hours after taking Italy to the European Championship final, coach Cesare Prandelli is already contemplating what he'll do after Sunday's match with Spain.
Prandelli's contract runs through the 2014 World Cup, but like Marcello Lippi at the 2006 World Cup, he appears weary from the match-fixing scandal afflicting the Azzurri back home. He also seems tired of criticism for bringing his son to the tournament as a physical trainer.
Prandelli says he misses being out on the pitch on daily basis with a club, ''but I have a great relationship with the federation. But the last two months have been very difficult.''
Concerning his son, Prandelli says ''some comments really hurt me.''
If he does leave, Prandelli could become the hottest name on the coaching market.
