The current European champions will defend their title under the guidance of a new coach.

The Italian national football team was left without a head coach. According to the official website of the Italian Football Federation, Roberto Mancini resigned five years after his appointment to the position.

Who will train the reigning European champions next will be known later. The search for a new coach is ongoing and the name of the coach will be announced in the next few days.

Mancini left the national team, submitting his resignation on Friday night. On Sunday, the association granted the specialist’s request for resignation.

Fabio Cannavaro and Daniele De Rossi are considered the main contenders for the vacant seat.

Roberto Mancini led the Italian national team to victory at the European Championship 2020. In the final, the Squadra Azzurra beat England in a penalty shootout. But then the Italians dramatically lost to Macedonia in the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup qualification.

The next match of the Italians in the selection for Euro 2024 is the match against the national team of North Macedonia, which will take place on September 9. And on September 12, the Squadra Azzurra will meet the Ukrainian team.
