Spalletti replaces Mancini as Italy coach

Serie A title-winning manager, Luciano Spalletti has been appointed coach of Italy national team.

Spalletti becomes the team’s new manager following the departure of Roberto Mancini, who resigned earlier this month.

64-year-old Spalletti left Napoli in the summer after guiding the club to their first Serie A title in 33 years.

After leading the Naples club to triumph, he planned to take a year-long sabbatical, but has now decided to make a swift return to the sport.

Mancini, 58, had led Italy for five years and guided them to victory at Euro 2020 when they beat England on penalties in the final at Wembley.

However, Italy failed to qualify for last year’s World Cup.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said Spalletti would take charge from 1 September.

“The national team needed a great coach and I’m very happy that he accepted,” FIGC president Gabriele Gravina said.

“His enthusiasm and his expertise will be fundamental for the challenges that await Italy in the coming months.”
