font size    

World Cup winning coach Marcello Lippi stood down on Wednesday, three days after he headed Italy to their fourth global title.

"I believe that I have achieved what I set out to achieve as coach of the Italian team," Lippi said in a press release.

"I want to thank the federation for the confidence it had in me during the last two years of work crowned by a result that will rest in the annals of Italian football and live on in the memory of our fans," he added.

Italy won their fourth World Cup in Berlin on Sunday when they defeated France in the final 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 tie in full time.
