Soccer: Trapattoni eager to keep coaching after Ireland exit


Rome, September 11 - Giovanni Trapattoni said
Wednesday he wanted to keep coaching after his five-year stint
as Ireland manager ended this week.
"I'm leaving Ireland but not soccer," the 74-year-old former
Juventus, Inter, Bayern Munich, Benfica, Salzburg and Italy boss
told ANSA on the phone after Ireland confirmed 'Trap' was
leaving following Tuesday's defeat in Austria that left the
Irish with little hope of qualifying for next year's World Cup.
"We parted ways on a consensual basis, with great fair play.
Now I'm looking at other possible jobs, without ruling anything
out," said Trapattoni, Serie A's most successful manager.
Trapattoni is one of only four coaches, alongside Ernst
Happel, José Mourinho, and Tomislav Ivić, to have won league
titles (10) in four different countries.
His 1970s and '80s Juventus side dominated Italian soccer,
winning seven 'scudetti'. He added another with Inter in 1989
before league titles at Bayern in 1997, Benfica in 2005 and
Salzburg in 2007.
Alongside Udo Lattek, he is the only coach to have won all
three major European club titles
In his five years with Ireland, Trapattoni narrowly missed
out on qualification for the 2010 World Cup, his side
controversially beaten in a play-off by France, but led the
Irish to Euro 2012.
'Trap' coached Italy from 2000 to 2004, overseeing unlucky
bids for the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004.
