Walter Zenga. He's one of the greats. For Italy. For Inter Milan. A title winner as a player - and as a coach. Zenga has achieved success across the game and the globe... and he's not done yet.
A championship winner in Romania and Serbia. Coaching with the likes of Wolves, Sampdoria and even Al-Nassr - pre-Cristiano Ronaldo - Zenga has taken that wealth of experience to Indonesia. Now 63, Zenga is working as technical consultant to Persita Tangerang. And he admits, while happy with the role, a return to coaching in Italy has been discussed.
Speaking with Tribalfootball.com, Zenga reflected. "Yes I have coached in different countries like The USA, Serbia, Romania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, in the UK, Italy and now I am a consultant of Persita Tangerang in Indonesia.
"To be sincere, in every place where I have been I learned something that would help me for my future. Also due to these experiences, I have friends in every corner of the world and this from a personal point of view is fantastic."
