Galatasaray in talks with former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli

  • Print

ISTANBUL - Galatasaray has confirmed it is in talks with former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli about taking over as manager of the Istanbul club.

Prandelli resigned from Italy immediately after the Azzurri's loss to Uruguay in the World Cup, which consigned his team to a disappointing group stage exit.

A brief statement from Galatasaray on Thursday confirmed the club "has begun negotiations with (Prandelli)" and "the public will be informed of developments."

Roberto Mancini left Galatasaray last month after just nine months in charge.

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes flew in for talks recently with the club, whichhas said its preferred choice is United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann or Joachim Low.

Prandelli was in charge of Italy for four years, leading the Azzurri to runners-up spot at the 2012 European Championship.
