Fabio Cannavaro, former defender and coach, has spoken to Ansa about the situation of the Italian national team. “The system has not worked in recent years. We need to find new solutions and understand why we are not producing as many champions anymore, why it is so difficult to qualify for a World Cup, why we are at risk of missing out on the European Championship, things that were once normal for us.”
Cannavaro expressed concern about the decline of Italian football and suggested that there are many factors that need to be considered. “There are definitely many other sports that young people are now playing, there are also fewer children being born, there are many things to reflect on. But it is not up to me, but to those who govern football to understand what needs to be changed.”
The former footballer and coach emphasized the importance of dedication and continuous improvement in his profession. “I believe that those in my profession always seek to give their best. We need to work, study, stay up to date, and then we will see what will happen in the future.”
These comments from Fabio Cannavaro reflect concerns about the state of Italian football and the need for change in order to bring the national team back to its former glory. This is an issue that those in charge of governing the sport will need to address in the coming years.
