Even after the arrival of Ralph Rangnick, Manchester United are still looking for a new coach. The German will remain in charge only until the end of the current season and, looking at next year, the arrival of a new coach will be necessary. Various names have been speculated, one of them being Italian Roberto Mancini, who is currently in charge of the national team. However, Mancini ruled out the possibility.
The 57-year-old coach took part in the presentation of the book “Photoansa 2021” at the MAXXI in Romurante, and denied that a return to the Premier League is likely. According to Mancini, speculations that his name will be included in Manchester United are baseless.
, All fake. I can guarantee that my only aim is to qualify Italy for the World Cup in Qatar and then become champion. We know that things were not going very well within the group, but we need to admit. Let’s roll up our sleeves and start again. We have one last chance, although the draw was not a positive for us. Are we European champions and can we get there? Mancini said.
Even with the focus highlighted by the coach, the UK press guarantees the Italian will be able to strike a deal with Manchester United in the event of their failure to qualify for the World Cup. In March next year, the Italians will have two deciding games to make it to the World Cup in Qatar. If the goal is not achieved, Mancini could be fired from his position in the Italian national team.
During 2009 and 2013, Roberto Mancini coached Manchester City and led the team to the Premier League title in 2011/12. The coach also won the FA Cup and Super Cup. The Italian has been in charge of the national team since 2018 and is trying to get Italy back into the World Cup after missing out on Russia.
