Roberto Mancini named new Italy boss

Italy name former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini as their new manager, with the 53-year-old reportedly signing a two-year contract.

Italy have named former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini as their new manager.

Mancini, who left his position with Zenit St Petersburg by mutual content last week, has reportedly signed a two-year contract with the national team.

The 53-year-old will officially be presented to the media as the new Azzurri boss on Tuesday afternoon.

Italy Under-21 manager Luigi Di Biagio had been in charge of the senior team following the dismissal of Gian Piero Ventura back in November.

The Azzurri failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after losing to Sweden in the playoffs.
