Many pundits are saying that Italy’s next match against Spain will Donadoni’s job decider. If Italy go on to win and knock Spain out of tournament, thus reaching the semi-finals, then Donadoni’s job would be safe. Donadoni had signed a contract extension of two years thereby a contract with the Italian National FA until 2010. Yet Abete had made it clear that he would keep the contract with the possibility of a disappointment in the Euros resulting in an early dismissal.
Italian Legend Tardelli On Donadoni’s Future
“It depends on the performances of the team and if Italy reach the last four.
“That would be quite an achievement for the team, but it really depends on what happens after that.”
“He has a contract until 2010 and if he gets into the semi-finals it would be absolutely right that he is allowed to carry on and see that contract through and I certainly hope that is the case. I would be of the opinion that it is not always the best decision to get rid of the manager if something is wrong. It is not always his fault.”
