Mancini goes to Manchester

45 year old Italian Roberto Mancini has been nominated Manchester City’s new coach / manager after Mark Hughes was sacked over the weekend.
Ancona born Mancini has already enjoyed a successful career as coach at Inter-Milan as well as with Rome’s Lazio and Fiorentina before that, as well as an impressive record as a player with Bologna, Sampdoria and Lazio. City will be his first experience in England, apart from a brief stint with Leicester City in 2001 where he played 4 matches before retiring as a player. The Times reports he is planning to bring two or three Italian players to the Manchester club as well as some of his ex fitness staff colleagues.
He will immediately be put to the test with City as they confront three games in quick succession over the Christmas period, something which does not happen in Italy where Christmas is considered a rest period.
