Patrizia Panico is making great strides in the world of men's football. The former footballer joined the staff of Italy Under 21. Before her, in 1999, Carolina Morace even managed to coach a men's team, the Viterbo in Serie C.
The development of women's football in Italy also passes through the growth of its technicians. Patrizia Panico is in the footsteps of Carolina Morace, a former player who went as far as the men's Serie C, where she trained the patron Gaucci's Viterbo team.
Panico, who is already a coach of Italy's Under-15 men's team, has taken an important step forward by joining the technical staff of Italy's Under-21 team, where he will support coach Nicolato.
Defined the technical cadres of the men's youth national teams that will resume their international activity in the coming months:
the main news is the inclusion of Patrizia Panico, also confirmed as an Under 15 coach, in the Under 21 staff, where she works alongside Mirco Gasparetto in the staff of Paolo Nicolato.
In the 7 men's youth national teams, the technicians, all confirmed, were divided by the coordinator Maurizio Viscidi with some changes:
Alberto Bollini will lead the Under 20, the team that in September in Veneto will face the elite round of the 2020 European Under-19 Championship postponed due to the Covid epidemic but not canceled like the other continental competitions as a qualifying tournament for the World Cup FIFA Under 20 scheduled for 2021 in Indonesia.
Carmine Nunziata goes from Under 17 to Under 19, which will come into play in the European 2021 from November with the first elimination phase.
Bernardo Corradi takes over the Under 17 team, another team that will be involved in the UEFA European Championship in the coming months and will have Daniele Zoratto on his staff, confirmed at the Under 16.
Finally to the Under 18 goes Daniele Franceschini, back from a brilliant first part of the season with the Under 20. (source ANSA).
