Esposito takes over Italy


Massimiliano Esposito has become the new coach of the Italian Beach Soccer National team, after the resignation of Giancarlo Magrini. Capped 48 times for the Azzurri Beach side, former eleven-a-side star is to assume a player-manager role, with the immediate goal of getting the best of the Italian powerful squad again, and driving it into their best shape for the Euro Beach Soccer League Superfinal, to be played next 26th to 29th in Portugal. After his appointment yesterday, Esposito stated that “I am very happy to begin this new experience. I feel it the culmination of a work devotedly performed for these last years, which I will perform with the same motivation and professionalism, both as a player and as the coach”.

 

Nearest horizons for the Azzurri are the friendly appointments of the Trofeo Igor Crescent, and the showdown against Switzerland in the Zurich Summer Festival, before they jump onto the Portuguese sand to defend the bronze medal achieved in last year’s EBSL Superfinal.

 

Alberto Mambelli, vice president of the Lega Nazionale Dilettanti, pointed that Esposito is “the right man at the right moment. He is a great sportsman and he absolutely knows the discipline and the group”. From this very moment on, then, Esposito has the responsibility of not only scoring goals for the national side, but also taking this importance place previously driven by men such as the former manager Giancarlo Magrini, Massimo Agostini, Fausto Silipo or Pedro Pablo Pasculli.
