I dub him MANC - CINI!!!!
So Roberto Mancini is our new manager, he has a good pedigree as a manger and was also a very accomplished player.
As a player Mancini has played for Bologna, Sampdoria, Lazio and the most glamorous of all Leicester City.
As a manager he has took charge of Fiorentina, Lazio and Inter Milan.
He won the Coppa Italia in his first and only season in charge of Fiorentina, he then moved to Lazio where he stayed for two years winning one more Coppa Italia. His best period as a manager was at Inter Milan, in four years he won three Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia's. He has also won plenty of top honours as a player which gives us a huge indication that he is a winner.
Although he wouldn't have been my choice I am not disappointed with Mancini's appointment, up until Inter saw fit to replace him with Mourinho he had a growing reputation as one of the best managers in Europe. Although he has only managed for seven years he has an average of one trophy per season, on top of that his reputation may mean he has more pull when it comes to signing players.
Hopefully another good thing about him is that Italians are renowned for defending and the way our defence is playing at the moment we could sure do with his expertise helping us out in that area of the pitch.
We will just have to wait and see what he does now and fingers crossed he will turn out to be a good appointment.
This is not the first of the Mancini family to be associated with City, His son Filippo was at the club on loan in 2008, he didn't stick around for long lets hope that his Father can do a little better.
What do you think? Is Mancini a good or bad choice?
