Mexico City:

Marcelo Lippi, who led Italy to its fourth World Cup title in July, is one of four candidates to take over Mexico's national team, according to a Mexican soccer federation official. Mexican federation general secretary Decio de Maria said Lippi was on the four-man short list in an interview published in the Reforma newspaper Tuesday. Last week, the federation announced that former Mexican national team hero and current Necaxa manager Hugo Sanchez also was among the candidates. Mexican newspapers have reported former German national team manager Juergen Klinsmann and Argentine Americo Gallego as the other two candidates, but the federation have not confirmed the speculation. Mexico's previous coach Ricardo Lavolpe moved to Argentine club Boca Juniors after Mexico lost to Argentina in the second round of this year's World Cup. (AP)
