  • Roberto Mancini

Former Inter Milan and Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini was given the daunting task of rebuilding Italy's national side on Monday following their astonishing failure to qualify for the World Cup.

"Roberto Mancini has signed as the new Italy Coach!" they announced via their official Twitter account.

The FIGC said it had "concluded an agreement with Roberto Mancini who will hold the position of coach of the national team".

He will succeed Gian Piero Ventura, who was sacked after Italy lost to Sweden in a two-legged playoff and failed to make the World Cup finals.

The Coach has been confirmed as the new Azzurri CT, and will be presented at Coverciano tomorrow morning.

It will be a first role in worldwide management for Mancini, who has left Russian club Zenit St Petersburg to take up the post.

That was one of five meeting records broken, while there were also eight world leads set at the Shanghai stadium. Birhanu Balew of Bahrain (13:09.64) won the race, with American Paul Chelimo (13:09.66) in second.


Mancini has also managed Fiorentina and Galatasaray.

Mancini, 53, led Inter to three Serie A titles and guided Man City to its first league title in 44 years in 2012.

It isn't all bad for the former Sampdoria forward though, who will pick up £1.8 million a year up until 2020 as attempts to take the Italy team through to the next European Championships.

He never became a regular with Italy during his 10-year global career, during which he won 36 caps and scored four goals.

Luigi Di Biagio guided Italy in an interim role for recent friendlies.
