January 12, 2011
Spalletti has been suggested as the No. 1 candidate to succeed national team coach Dick Advocaat, whose contract with the Russian Federation expires after Euro 2012.
When asked about those reports in the Russian media, Spalletti said to Italian news agency Ansa: ''I'm happy about that, and proud. It's something I would certainly be interested in.''
