Ferrara to coach the Italy Under-21s

Posted on 22/10/2010


Ciro Ferrara has been formally appointed in charge of the Italy Under-21s in a surprise move. 

The 43-year-old replaces Pierluigi Casiraghi who left his post after failing to qualify the Azzurrini for the European Championship and London 2012. 

Angelo Peruzzi will assist Ferrara who has put pen to paper on a three-year contract. 

The FIGC will unveil Ferrara to the Italian media on October 25 at 3pm. 

Ferrara has been out of work since the spring when Juventus sacked him after just six months at the helm. 

His time in charge of the Turin giants was largely judged to have been a failure.
