It’s time to win. Mancini unearthed a new challenge in the Saudi sands

Date: May 23, 2024 Time: 08:55:32

Roberto Mancini’s era in the Italian national team came to an end, but the mentor did not remain without work for long – two weeks. He quickly put it into circulation Saudi Arabia, which has recently taken up football seriously. Now the Italian mentor will direct the selection of this country.

Some will say that Mancini always chose money, the reason for his appearances at Zenit, and now in the Middle East. What’s wrong with that? Wherever the mentor worked, he achieved good results: in all clubs, except for Zenit, he always won at least one trophy. At Inter, in general, there were up to seven, including three Scudetto.

The Italian team was Roberto’s first experience with national teams. As a result, the Squadra Azzurra twice became the bronze medalist of the League of Nations, and at the European Championship they led all the Apennines to rapture, beating England at Wembley in the final on penalties. Mancini definitely left a golden mark on the history of his native team.

By the way, let’s not forget that, in addition to the continental championship gold, the specialist also has a record streak of matches without losing – 37. Italy was not inferior to anyone from September 2018 to October. 2021.

With Italy, Mancini was at the same time on top of the world and at the bottom when he embarrassingly failed to qualify for the World Cup. Now he has found himself with a new challenge, for which he was seduced, according to leaked information, 30 million euros a year. Just don’t think that the Saudi Arabian national team is some kind of clumsy who doesn’t even know how to handle the ball.

The Saudis have won the Asian Cup three times, but in the previous tournament, in 2019, they blew away in the round of 16, beating Japan in the first game of the playoffs. In qualifying for the last World Championship, the team once again demonstrated its class, ahead of Japan and Australia in the decisive third round.

The famous Italian coach Fabio Capello supported his colleague: “I am very happy for Mancini, it is logical that such a specialist quickly found a job. Saudi Arabia can only be praised for getting such a manager. Football is developing rapidly in the country. At this rate, the country will soon be at the level of the French, Italian and German teams.”

Still, one shouldn’t expect a Mancini miracle in Saudi Arabia. Not long ago, China also actively bought star players and coaches, but the level of the national team did not rise much because of this. Roberto, although he is a great trainer, he is still not a magician. But it is possible that each side will get what they want from this union: the coach will earn money before the probable end of his career, and the Saudi Arabian national team will take a step forward, because a mentor with such a big name and a solid track record has never before I had worked with her.
