Italian coach Mancini to leave Zenit

Italian coach Mancini to leave Zenit

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

The former Man City manager has signed a two-year contract with the Azzurri.

.

Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is a possible replacement at Zenit for Mancini, the Russian club's deputy sporting director Vyacheslav Malafeev told Russia's RIA Novosti news agency.

The FIGC said Mancini would officially be presented at the team's headquarters in Florence on Tuesday.

The Azzurri have been searching for a new manager since Giampiero Ventura left a year ago in the wake of their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

"Tomorrow will be the official presentation at Coverciano, it will be the formalisation of a long-standing discourse".

Mancini left his job at Zenit St. Petersburg on Monday by mutual consent. Milan youngsters Gianluigi Donnarumma and Alessio Romagnoli also look like future stalwarts in another formidable Italian backline.

That was followed by a stint at big-spending Manchester City where he won one English Premier League and one FA Cup title in four seasons.

Under-21 coach Luigi Di Biagio took the reins for March friendlies against Argentina and England.

Since leaving the Etihad in 2013 he has managed Galatasaray and Inter again before being appointed Zenit boss last June.
