Warsaw: Italy coach Cesare Prandelli hinted on Friday he may not look to stay at the helm after Sunday's Euro 2012 final against holders Spain, saying he had found the job gruelling against a backdrop of match-fixing allegations in his homeland.
"These past two months have been difficult - aside from my excellent rapport with the team and the Federation. (But) these two months have weighed heavily on me and there is not the serenity which I was looking for," Prandelli told a news conference as he contemplated life beyond the final.
"Shall I be on my way? I have already told you about the quality of life (and its importance to him) and I shall be reflecting on things more calmly. I do not want to say anything more for the moment - we shall return to this subject in three days (after the final)," said Prandelli, who took the post after the 2010 World Cup finals.
