Daniele De Rossi, Alessandro Del Piero, Massimo Maccarone, Riccardo Montolivo, Giampaolo Pazzini and Christian Vieri are among former players taking their coaching badges.
The latest class for the UEFA Coaches A course at the FIGC’s centre of Coverciano has been unveiled and there are many familiar faces.
Among them, we find former Roma midfielder De Rossi, who had been linked with several management roles over the summer, but did not have the correct paperwork.
He is now beginning the process to get his badges, which will allow him to become a Serie A coach.
Others include Del Piero, David Pizarro, Federico Balzaretti, Vieri, Montolivo, Ignazio Abate, Alessandro Matri, Andrea Costa, Maccarone, Pazzini, Gianluca Curci and Daniele Gastaldello.
