Roberto Mancini Named Italy National Team Manager

Roberto Mancini has been named as manager of the Italy national team after agreeing to his exit from Russian powerhouse Zenit St Petersburg.

The Azzurri’s official Twitter account confirmed the former Manchester City and Inter Milan boss would replace Gian Piero Ventura, who was sacked from the role after Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in November:

BBC Sport reported Mancini has agreed to a two-year deal to manage Italy, which will keep him in charge of the team until after the 2020 European Championship.

Luigi di Biagio made the move up from Italy’s under-21s to coach the senior side in a caretaker role, serving for six months before the Italian Football Federation could reach an agreement on a permanent replacement.
