Even today, "I like everything about football. It's not a perfect world, there are flaws, but I love it the same way."

Marcello Lippi tells ANSA when speaking about "Ora vinco io" the docufilm that Simone Herbert Paragnani and Paolo Geremei dedicated to one of the most beloved and successful coaches in Italian football.

The non-fiction film, after its debut at the Turin Film Festival, was selected for the Nastri d'Argento documentaries and is about to arrive in theaters with an event release from Monday 26th to Wednesday 28th February with Lucky Red, which will handle the commercial distribution .

"It was a satisfaction that someone thought to retrace all the most important stages of my career - comments Lippi - from the point of view of my professional path and my family, in every aspect. I was very pleased".

Now I win - Marcello Lippi', produced by On Production and Master Five Cinematografica with Rai Cinema, traces, between public and private, a portrait of the 'mister' from Viareggio, born in 1948, five times Italian champion with Juventus (with whom he also won, among others, the Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup), technical commissioner of the Italian national team (from 2004 to 2006 and from 2008 to 2010), who led Italy to victory in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. path built with family films, archive images, dialogue with Lippi, interviews with a wave of football protagonists (among others, Ivano Bordon, Zinedine Zidane, Francesco Totti, Christian Vieri, Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Alessandro Del Piero, Adriano Galliani, Marco Materazzi), together with other friends, admirers, colleagues and members of his family.

The 'now I win' of the title is the principle from which the coach started in every new professional adventure: are there any guidelines, which he has always followed, to win?

"The most important thing is to have strong players - he replies smiling -. Then you have to put good players in the psychological and physical conditions to perform to the maximum of their possibilities and perhaps I was a little good at that too".

The film also returns to Lippi's first life in football as a player, who grew up in the Red Star of Viareggio and arrived in Serie A with Sampdoria: "Then I didn't imagine one day coaching - he explains - but you have to tell the truth, I hadn't been able to study a lot, nor did I get any diplomas... so when I stopped playing I thought about continuing with football, which has always been a great passion of mine. I wanted to try to do something important and I thought about becoming a coach."

In his life the two greatest prides are "family and the World Cup".

A victory, that of 2006, "which came thanks to the human quality of those players,

and the great desire they had to make themselves available to each other, a wonderful thing." That at the world championships "was a fantastic ride from the first to the last day". Among the snapshots that Lippi recalls of that victory, " the moment we had that golden cup in our hands, and then finding myself thrown into the air by all the footballers... a fantastic moment." The non-fiction film also gives space to another of his great passions, the sea: "For me it has never represented an escape, because I don't have to escape from anything, but the sensations I feel when I am in the sea, swimming, or sailing are among the most precious for me." How did you decide when to stop as a coach? "I started thinking about it after winning the World Cup", and again at the end of the second period as coach of the Italian national team: "I thought about how lucky I had been in my career.... But then I received an offer that was so important, also economically, from China (in 2012, that of coaching Guangzhou, ed.) which I decided to accept.

We won three league titles and an Asian Champions League... that experience was also beautiful." In his career, he has always faced defeats head-on: "they are part of our job and give more meaning to victories". What advice would you give to a young coach today? "Try to get the best out of your players, from a technical point of view but above all from a human point of view."
