Italian media outlet ‘Area Napoli’ reported on Thursday (KST), ‘After announcing his resignation, the former Italy coach will be very close to leading Saudi Arabia.
It is quite shocking that he would go straight to Saudi Arabia’s head coach less than a day after resigning from Italy. Mancini, who has coached Man City and Italy, is a coach who builds solid defenses and midfields. He has a good eye for recruitment and has performed well at international level, leading Italy to Euro 2020 and finishing as the runner-up for Fifa’s Coach of the Year,
Saudi Arabia has been bringing in high-profile managers in recent years. From Reichardt at 48, to Van Marwijk at 51, Fitch at 53, and most recently Renard. The Saudis have been looking for a coach since Renard left to take charge of the French women’s national team in 2023.
According to the media, the offer handed to Mancini was for an annual salary of around €20 million for three years. His signature on the new deal could now arrive as early as August 14, and Italy is expected to move quickly to appoint former Napoli coach Spalletti in preparation.
