After officially earning his UEFA A coaching license earlier in October, Roma legend Daniele De Rossi returns to Italy’s national team.

Today, the FIGC announced that De Rossi will work as a technical assistant for the federation, focusing on the youth sector.

He will be collaborating with the U-20 and U-15 squads and working directly with their respective coaches.

This is another step in De Rossi’s journey toward becoming a full-time manager. He will be joined by former Italy teammate, Andrea Barzagli.
