Fabio Cannavaro is one of the greatest players in the world of football and the only defender to be chosen as the best player in the world in 2006. The Italian has been trying to achieve the same success he had on the field, but now on the sidelines.
His career as a manager started in Chinese football, reaching the national team and the country’s biggest club, Guangzhou Evergrande. However, his future plans are focused on Europe.
In an interview with the website “Real Madridista”, a website of Real Madrid fans, Cannavaro commented that he has been considering the possibility of returning to the club one day. This time, as a manager.
“I’m working one day to go back and train a club like Real Madrid. If you want to be a manager, you have to think about the top, and the top is Real Madrid, the Italian national team or a big club in Europe. To achieve this, I have to be ready.”, said the former player.
Another career goal set by Cannavaro is to return to a World Cup with the Italian national team, where he was once a World Champion. This time, on the sidelines, his task may be more difficult.
“I’m an ambitious guy, and of course one of the goals I have is to return to the national team someday, to be lucky enough to train my country, go to a World Cup and do well. Because I was fortunate enough to be a champion as a captain, and hopefully one day I can do it as a coach, just like Deschamps and Beckenbauer. Of course, it is one of my goals, but I have more.”, added him.
When asked about the work of Zinedine Zidane, as Real Madrid commander, Cannavaro also said that it is difficult not to evaluate the Frenchman’s work well in the face of the third European championship in a row.
