The Serie A club Udinese has decided to part ways with Fabio Cannavaro from his position as head coach, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

Despite the fact that the recipient of the 2006 Ballon d'Or saved the Friulians from relegation, they have chosen not to continue their collaboration with him.

It is noted that Cannavaro is ready for a new challenge in his coaching career and wishes to manage another team in Serie A.

This was Cannavaro's first experience coaching in Serie A. Previously, he had moderately successful coaching stints in Serie B with Benevento, and before that, he worked with several Asian clubs as well as the Chinese national team.

As a footballer, Fabio played for Inter Milan, Napoli, Parma, Juventus, and Real Madrid. He won the 2006 FIFA World Cup with the Italian national team and was awarded the Ballon d'Or in the same year. Since then, no defender has received this accolade.

Udinese finished the season under Cannavaro's guidance in 15th place in the standings of the elite Italian division.
