Mancini resigns as Italy boss after five-year reign


Coach Roberto Mancini of Italy gestures during the Netherlands v Italy - UEFA Nations League 2022/23 Third-place match between Netherlands and Italy at the FC Twente Stadion on June 18, 2023 in Enschede, Netherlands.

Roberto Mancini has resigned as manager of Italy after five years in charge.

The Italian, 58, took charge of the team after they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup and led them to victory at Euro 2020, beating England on penalties in the final at Wembley.

The team went on a world record 37-game unbeaten run but then failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Mancini's successor will be named "in the next few days".

"The Italian Football Federation announces that it has taken note of the resignation of Roberto Mancini from the position of coach of the Italian national team, received late yesterday evening," the Italian Football Federation said.
