Lippi says he will ignore the media raps in South Africa...
The Italian media have started to build up their pros and cons columns in relation to the coach's squad choices after leaving out a number of players from his squad.
But, Lippi believes talk is cheap.
"Risks? Yes, but I really don't care," he told Sky Sport 24.
"How much I risk is not important. It has never been a problem for me. the risk is always there, otherwise there would have been no point coming back to try and win another World Cup.
"I know well that they [the press] will massacre me, but I don't care. It will go in through one ear, and out of the other.
"I want to try and relive the emotions."
