The FIGC is now tasked with finding a new coach for the Italian National Team following Roberto Mancini’s shock decision to step down.
Things have been tough for the Azzurri following their incredible success at Euro 2020, their first trophy since the 2006 World Cup.
The team missed out on a place at the 2022 World Cup after a disastrous defeat to North Macedonia in the play-off last year.
This was their second consecutive absence after failing to even make it to Russia 2018.
Mancini was in charge for 61 games during his time in charge of Italy, taking 39 wins, 13 draws and nine defeats. He also set a new record in international football as he led the team to a 36-match unbeaten streak.
The FIGC has begun work to find a replacement, while Italian media have listed five names that could take Mancini’s place.
1 – Antonio Conte
2 – Luciano Spalletti
3 – Massimiliano Allegri
4- Gennaro Gattuso
5- Fabio Grosso
