Former Juventus and Italy boss Lippi retires from coaching at age 72

Share This


Former Italy, Juventus and World Cup-winning boss Marcello Lippi has announced his retirement from football.

Lippi was the head coach of China back in November last year following a 2022 World Cup qualifying defeat to Syria lasting just six months on the job. 

The 72-year-old won the Silverware with Italy, Serie A giants Juventus and Chinese powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande during his illustrious career as a coach.

"I'm definitely done with the coaching job," Lippi told Radio Sportiva . "That's right, it's enough. Maybe I could be useful in other roles, let's see. But nothing until spring."

After spells with Atalanta and Napoli, Lippi took charge of Juventus in 1994 – guiding the Bianconeri to three Serie A titles and the club's last Champions League trophy in 1995-96.

Across two stints as Juve coach, sandwiched in between a one-year tenure with rivals Inter, Lippi won five Serie A trophies, four Supercoppa Italiana crowns, the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup and Coppa Italia.

After leaving Juventus in 2004, Lippi helped Italy to World Cup glory in 2006 and he was re-appointed by the Azzurri in 2008 following two years away from the national team.

In China, Lippi joined Guangzhou Evergrande in 2012 and claimed three Chinese Super League titles and the AFC Champions League trophy to go with Chinese FA Cup and Chinese FA Super Cup success.
