Rome - Italy coach Marcello Lippi has indicated he will step down again after the World Cup in South Africa.

Lippi said that Italian football federation president Giancarlo Abete "already knows what I will do after the World Cup".

Lippi has been linked with a return to the club he formerly coached, Juventus, in a managerial position.

The Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday was already considering Lippi's possible replacement, with Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti and Cagliari coach Massimiliano Allegri topping the list.
