Lippi said: “It’s difficult to work in the Premier League, because it appeals to me to have direct contact with the group with which I’m working. And this cannot happen if I must use a translator.
“But it is also very difficult for me to return to Italy. I have only said, till now, that I want to coach for another 3-4 years, inasmuch as I am only 59. I want to still try for beautiful emotions. In May, if there is some team that calls me, I will consider their offer.”
