Recall that Mancini denied legendary United boss Alex Ferguson the Premier League title on the last day of the 2011-12 season when Sergio Aguero grabbed a last-gasp winner against QPR.

During his spell at Man City, the 55-year-old signed top-quality players including Aguero, David Silva and Yaya Toure.

He spent four seasons at the Etihad winning the league, FA Cup and the League Cup but was sacked in 2014 after losing the cup final to relegated Wigan.

The Italian gaffer has moved on to manage Turkish side Galatasary, Russian club Zenit St Petersburg and Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Mancini has only lost two matches in 26 games since he took over the mantle as coach of the national team in 2018.

The former Lazio striker is poised to lead his country to go even further in the Nations League as well as the Euros and the 2022 World Cup.
