Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini could be a serious contender for the England manager job, since he not only has experience in the English Premier League, but he’s also won the title in recent years.
Mancini’s also won the English FA Cup and the Italian Serie A in the past with Inter Milan, his current club. The Italian’s future is up in the air due to the Chinese takeover at Inter.
A three-man English Football Association (FA) panel -including FA technical director Dan Ashworth, chief executive Martin Glenn and vice-chairman David Gill – met in Paris and have identified three key areas when selecting a new manager:
- Assess England’s Euro 2016 team through speaking to the team and others outside the squad
- Undertake a general review into England’s performances at previous tournaments
- Identify candidates to become the next England manager
As well as ex-England players, the FA has consulted former Tottenham and West Ham manager Harry Redknapp about England performances at previous tournaments.
The Football Association have begun the process of recruiting a new England manager and identifying the team’s recurring flaws in major tournament by canvassing the opinion of leading football figures such as Gary Lineker, Rio Ferdinand and Harry Redknapp.
Feelers taken out on Mancini, indicate that the Inter Milan coach would be interested in joining England. Now, the FA needs to determine if he’s the one they want. It’s already been reported that Redknapp himself is not in the short list of candidates, after being the favourite before Hodgson got the job.
