FIGC announces that Roma legend Daniele De Rossi has been appointed as technical coach for Italy’s youth teams.

De Rossi was part of Roberto Mancini’s staff at Euro 2020, a role that he left to attend the course to get the UEFA A coaching license at Coverciano.

The former midfielder received the highest grades, along with Alessandro Del Piero, and has now returned to Coverciano with a new role.

“Daniele De Rossi returns to the Azzurri fold. After assisting on the staff for the Italy men’s team and then completing his UEFA A coaching license at Coverciano, the 2006 World Champion returns to the set-up as a technical coach for the youth teams,” a FIGC statement read.

“De Rossi will be, like former teammate Andrea Barzagli,  one of the technical coaches at the disposal at various levels – from Under-20 to Under-15 – thus allowing him to complete his formative coaching experience and, at the same time, contribute to the Azzurrini’s growth, working alongside the coaches that lead the various youth teams.”

De Rossi won two Coppa Italia and one Italian Super Cup with Roma during his playing career, but lifted the World Cup with Italy in 2006.
