Italy great Claudio Gentile, a 1982 World Cup winner, to coach Swiss club Sion
SION, Switzerland - World Cup-winning former Italy defender Claudio Gentile is to become the new coach of Swiss club Sion.
Sion says on its website that Gentile has agreed on a two-year contract and takes charge next week.
Gentile had the reputation as one of the world's toughest defenders when helping Italy win the 1982 World Cup.
He won six Serie A titles with Juventus during 1974-84.
As a coach, Gentile led Italy to win the Under-21 European Championship in 2004.
Sion has a reputation for firing coaches with few, including Italian 2006 World Cup winner Gennaro Gattuso, lasting more than a few months.
