Scala applies for Scotland job
Italian coach Nevio Scala revealed on Friday that he has applied for the vacant Scotland job.
The 62-year-old is currently a radio pundit in Italy after being sacked by Spartak Moscow, but is keen to get back into management and hopes to succeed the recently sacked George Burley as Scotland chief.
Former Borussia Dortmund boss Scala - who has been a candidate for the Scotland job before, made his name during a successful spell at Parma, leading the club into Serie A and winning the European Cup Winners' Cup, the UEFA Cup and the European Super Cup.Scala, who has also managed in Germany, Turkey and Ukraine, told the Daily Record: "I have made my interest known to the Scottish FA. I have always had a great respect for Scottish football and have an affinity for the country.
"I would want to have a Scottish coach working beside me and I believe I could do a good job.
"I've every confidence in my own ability and I am still hungry to be a successful coach. Why not with Scotland?
"I have coached in several European countries and I have always had no difficulties with language or settling in. We speak the universal language of football."
