 Retirement after the Asian Cup? Lippi: still wanting to coach the national team club.


The 70-year-old has been coaching the Chinese mens soccer team for the last two years, but in a recent interview he has deliberately avoided previous talk of retirement after the Asian Cup. Speaking about his contract with China, Lippi said: I have a contract with China until the end of January. I will talk to the Football Association after the Asian Cup. Id like to work for a few more years, but Im not going to coach any club team. If I coach the national team, Id like to be closer to my hometown. Asked about Italian coach Condi, Lippi said: He is a very good coach and he can teach at any club in the world. But now I dont know what he thinks in his mind.
