Zenit agree Mancini exit as Italy loom

Zenit agree Mancini exit as Italy loom

The former Zenit boss, who has agreed to a contract of undisclosed length, will be officially presented at a news conference in Florence on Tuesday.

Despite Allardyce being contracted until the end of the 2018-19 season, one fan would have Mancini "in a heartbeat", while another described him as a "tactical genius".

Mancini, 53, signed a three-year deal with Zenit last summer with an option of a two-year extension.

Roberto Mancini ended a disappointing spell in Russian Federation with Zenit St Petersburg on Sunday and has now finalised an agreement with the Italian FA on Monday in Rome.

With Italy, Mancini will replace Giampiero Ventura, who was sacked in November after the Azzurri failed to reach the World Cup for the first time in 60 years.

Zenit St Petersburg have announced that head coach Roberto Mancini will be leaving the club.

Mancini will manage the 2006 world champions for the first time on Monday, May 28, when they face Saudi Arabia in a friendly meeting before they prepare for the UEFA Nations League to get underway in September.

Luigi di Biagio had taken up the job on an interim basis, stepping up from the Under-21 set-up, but he has since stepped back down to accommodate the new man.

He previously coached Fiorentina, Lazio, inter, Manchester city and Galatasaray.

That was followed by a stint at City, where he won the 2012 Premier League title and the FA Cup in a four-season spell.
