Even with the arrival of Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United are still looking for a new coach. The German will only take charge until the end of the current season and, given next year, it will be necessary for a new coach to arrive. Among the various names that have been speculated, one of them is Italian Roberto Mancini, who is currently in charge of the national team. However, Mancini ruled out this possibility.
The 57-year-old co-presented Photoansa 2021, at the MAXXI Theater in Romorante, and denied the possibility of a return to the Premier League. According to Mancini, the speculation involving his name for Manchester United is unfounded.
? All fake. I can guarantee that my only goal is for Italy to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar and then to be a champion. We know things didn’t go well within the group, but we need to accept. Let’s roll up our sleeves and start over. We have one last chance, although the lottery wasn’t a positive for us. Are we the European champions and can we get there? Mancini said.
Even with the focus highlighted by the coach, the British press ensured that the Italian would be able to settle with Manchester United should they fail to qualify for the World Cup. In March next year, the Italians will play two crucial matches for a place in the Qatar World Cup. If the goal is not achieved, Mancini can be expelled from his position in the Italian national team.
During 2009 and 2013, Roberto Mancini coached Manchester City and led the team to the English Premier League title in 2011/12. The coach also won the FA Cup and the Super Cup. The Italian has been in charge of the national team since 2018 and is trying to return Italy to the World Cup after missing Russia.
