Former Premier League champion Roberto Mancini could be about to return to England’s top division in the near future.
Of course, the Italian manager managed to win Manchester City’s first-ever Premier League title in the 2011/12 season with that famous Sergio Aguero goal sealing the title for the Citizens in emphatic and dramatic fashion.
He also managed to win the FA Cup in 2011, which is perhaps why there is one Premier League side that is thought to be interested in acquiring the Italian.
According to a report by Matt Law, the Telegraph journalist has claimed that the current Italy boss could be seen as an alternative for Tottenham Hotspur – along with Graham Potter – if they were to fail to get Mauricio Pochettino to return should Antonio Conte decide to depart for Paris Saint-Germain and replace the Argentine as reports have suggested.
Indeed, there is a lot of confusion regarding this, which is why it is wise that those who use the casinos8888 China sites make sure they know exactly what is going on before potentially placing a wager on anything related to this topic.
It has been revealed that Mancini would have support at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if he were to arrive, with managing director Fabio Paratici also said to be a ‘big fan’ of the current national team manager.
It is also claimed that the role with the Azzurri is one that he could look to walk away from if he was to be offered a return to the Premier League.
Of course, we know that Italy failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar this winter, therefore it could be argued that Mancini is ready to take a look at alternatives and perhaps even get back into day-to-day management.
The 57-year-old has shown no interest in the past, though, about a return to the Premier League, as he was asked about potentially taking the Manchester United job and was quick to shut them all down.
He claimed that they were ‘all false’ and that his ‘only focus’ at the time was to make sure Italy qualified for the World Cup. As we mentioned, that failed to happen, so perhaps those ideas have now changed.
Although we know there is no real loyalty in football, perhaps he also denied the Man Utd role because of his history with Man City? It would have been a lot easier to deny any interest in the job if he were not selected but it would not have been a surprise if he had been unveiled as the next manager, either.
