After yet another Ko seasonal Spal has chosen: out Simple, the hero of the double promotion and then the salvation of the last year, inside Di Biagio. A coach with zero appearances in the Series, a pedigrée federal and with to its shoulders, some experiences, especially from ct’s Under 21, not too positive. From the form preferred to the adventures from the breeder of the three most famous representative of Italian, this is who the Biagio coach.
Di Biagio, more shadows than lights with Under-21 among the strongest
From July 2013, Gigi Di Biagio has been appointed coach of the National Under-21 veteran, in the summer, from second place in the european football championship of the category in Israel with the selection of Eats was defeated in the final 3-1 to Spain.

First, however, 45 games from Ct, an average of 1.80 points per game, 24 achievements, 9 draws and 12 Knockouts. But also three competitions, the continental is not just the height of the ambitions and desire of the Federation to meet before in that context after so many years of fasting.
You evil, in 2015 in the Czech Republic. Despite a selection that includes talents such as Belotti, Berardi, Rugani, Romagnoli , or Bernardeschi and boasts the third-overall market value of the review, the Team do not go beyond the Group B with Spain, Portugal and England, winning only one win, in the end useless against the Three Lions of Southgate. The following two years, in 2017, things are a wire best, even if the stroke of the National Under 21 in Poland is interrupted in the semi-finals.

Win, reaction from the great team and record at +3 in an edition with three groups with awards for the winners of the Groups and the best second.
But the Ko with Poland, the unexpected and the unexpected, with the network 40’ of Bielik complicates everything. So much so that the success against Belgium for 3 networks one is not worth the pass to the semi-finals which is accessed by Spain, winner of Group A, the Germany, who triumphs in the B, Romania and then France with 7 points and becomes the second best of the tournament.
A rose, by more than 300 million euro, Of Biagio fails the european target rassegnando, on the 25th of June last, the resignation from the Ct of the Under-21 side. With zero successes to report, a palmares blank, and another goal, the qualification to the Olympics, failed.
