Roberto Mancini has abruptly resigned from the Italian national team. The shocking resignation has been followed by rumors of a job with the Saudi Arabian national team.
Mancini announced on Wednesday that he was stepping down as head coach of the Italian national team. It’s hard to understand the reaction, as he was guaranteed the job for the next five years after leading the Azzurri to the top of the UEFA Euro 2020 table.
Mancini said on social media, “My decision to step down as coach is a personal one. I will never forget the extraordinary victory at the Euros. It was an honor,” he said in his farewell.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said: “There are important and close things for the national team, including the Euro 2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia and Ukraine. In the next few days, we will announce the appointment of a new national team coach.” 메이저놀이터
According to reports in Italian media, Mancini has been linked to the Saudi Arabian national team. The current head coach of the Saudi Arabian national team is Poland’s Dariusz Juraf.
Luciano Spalletti, who led SSC Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years, has also been mentioned as the next head coach of the Italian national team, along with Antonio Conte, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur, and Fabio Cannavaro, who has coached in China and elsewhere.
Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Since Mancini’s appointment in May 2018, the Azzurri have failed to qualify for back-to-back tournaments, despite winning the Euros and failing to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
