Italy – Roberto Mancini

Roberto Mancini is the current managerial incumbent with the Italian national football team having accepted the position in 2018. Mancini was born in Lesi in 1964 and has been involved in football for nearly four decades as both a player and a manager.

As a player, Mancini enjoyed a career which lasted over two decades. During this time he made 545 appearances and scored 156 times. In addition to this, he also represented his country 36 times in including at the World Cup and European Championships. He began his life in football with Bologna in 1981. Aged just 17, the forward was awarded his first professional contract. In his one and only season with the club, he scored nine times in 30 appearances, a magnificent record for a teenager.

His precocious talent was recognised quickly and he was snapped up by Italian giants Sampdoria in time for the start of the 1982/1983 season. Mancini would go down in history as certified club legend for Sampdoria. In total he would make 424 league appearances over an incredible 15 year spell with the Italian giants. In this time frame he notched up 132 goals and won a number of personal honours and trophies. The first of these trophies came in the 1984/1985 season as Sampdoria won the Coppa Italia. It would be the first of six triumphs in the competition the Italian would enjoy throughout his career. In fact, Sampdora won the competition four times in Mancini's 15 years with the club. in 1984/1985, 1987/1988, 1988/1989 and 1993/1994.

The crowing achievement of his time with Sampdoria was probably the Serie A win in 1991. This came at a time when Italian football was in its prime and there were a number of truly world-class teams competing for it each year - to win it was a truly special achievement, a far cry from the dominance of Juventus of recent years. In addition to this, Mancini helped Sampdoria to the Supercoppa Italia trophy in 1991 and the European Cup Winners Cup the year before.

After saying an emotional goodbye to Sampdoria, Mancini saw out the rest of his playing days with Lazio. It was another trophy-laden spell - Mancini won the Coppa Italia two more times as well as Serie A again in 1999/2000.

After moving in to management following the end of his playing career, it became apparent that Mancini was going to be a top coach. He began at Fiorentina, winning the Coppa Italia in his first and only season with the club. Then he moved back to Lazio where his side would win Italy's cup competition again. By this point, Mancini was one of the competition's most successful participants ever.

His successes earned him a move to Inter Milan where he established himself as one of the top managers in Europe. They won three Serie A titles in as many years and twice won the Coppa Italia, taking Mancini's total wins in the competition up to an astonishing 10.

Following this, Mancini got his first taste of football outside Italy as he moved to newly-minted Manchester City in 2009. He won the club's first ever Premier League trophy in 2011/2012 with that incredible final day goal from Aguero. He also won the FA Cup and the Community Shield with the Sky blues before leaving England.

Since then, his managerial career has been less impressive. He won the Turkish Cup with Galatasary in the 2013/2014 season but other than that there has not been much of note. Now, Mancini finds himself in charge of his country and hopes to restore them to their former glories in time for the 2020 European Championships.
