Rome, July 2 - Former Italy, AS Roma and Inter
Milan midfielder Luigi Di Biagio has replaced Devis Mangia as
the coach of the Under-21 national team, the Italian Soccer
Federation (FIGC) announced on Tuesday.
Last month Mangia led the 'Azzurrini' to the final of the
European Under-21 championship in Israel, where they lost 4-2 to
Spain.
Former Palermo boss Mangia, who had been in charge of
Italy's Under-21 team since last year, had been offered a
contract extension by the FIGC but he decided he wanted to
return to club football.
Di Biagio, who won 31 Italy caps and played at the 1998 and
2002 World Cups and Euro 2000, has been promoted from his
position at the helm of the Italian Under-20 national team.
