Lippi to return in February

Lippi said last night: “I have absolutely not left football, my intention is to return when I am fully recharged.

“I’ve only taken a pause for reflection, like when I left Juve some years ago. I hope to be contacted between February, March. I’m open to contact from a club that proposes to me a serious plan for next season.

“I don’t necessarily want to train a big club.”
