Ex-Italian manager dies

Coach Azeglio Vicini, who managed to put Italy to semi-finals at 1988 European championship and World Cup on home soil two years later, has passed away yesterday in his home in Brescia. Whole career worked on the Apennine peninsula: as midfielder debuted for Vicenza, then played for Sampdoria and Brescia, while later started training youth categories of the national team, as well as senior. He died at the age of 84, leaving wife Ines and three children. All Serie A games this weekend will begin with a minute silence.
