Roberto Mancini appointed Italy manager

Roberto Mancini appointed new Italy boss with an aim of rebuilding squad for Euro 2020

Mancini left his job at Zenit St. Petersburg on Monday by mutual consent.

"The FIGC can confirm that Roberto Mancini has been named new Head Coach of the National Team and will be presented tomorrow at Coverciano, Tuesday 15th May, at 12:00 CEST", read the FIGC website.

One of Mancini's first decisions will be whether to recall maverick striker Mario Balotelli, who he often clashed with when the pair were at Manchester City.

"To coach the national team is a reason to be proud for anyone".

"The failure to qualify for the World Cup caused mourning and this shows how important it is for our country", he added.

The Italian FA has been without a first-team manager since the sacking of Gian Pietro Ventura.

The company's fleet is now made up of Lexus RX450h SUVs, each outfitted with Apple's proprietary technology. General Motors' Cruise Automation division has 104 cars and 407 drivers, according to the DMV figures.

Mancini's contract is reportedly worth two million euros ($2.3 million) a year and will lead Italy to Euro 2020 with the option to extend until June 2022 before the World Cup in Qatar and will lead Italy for the first time against Saudi Arabia May 28 in Switzerland.

Mancini will stay at Zenit until the final round of Russian fixtures on May 13.

Luigi di Biagio had stepped up from the Under-21s to take interim charge of the senior national side but will now make way for Mancini.

However, the Azzurri have found their man and former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini will fill the void. Meanwhile, current Nantes boss Claudio Ranieri was thought to be in the running.

Mancini's two-year contract will run concurrently with European Championship qualifiers, as well as the tournament proper.
