Saudi Arabia, which could be Jurgen Klinsmannho’s first win opponent, has appointed a new coach.
The Saudi Arabian Football Federation announced on the 28th (Korean time) that former Italy national football team manager Robert Mancini has been appointed as Saudi national football team manager. His contract is for four years, until the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America.
“I am very honored to be offered the position of coaching the Saudi Arabia national football team. I see this as a great opportunity for me to experience football in a new country and especially Asia where the football population is growing,” said Mancini.
“I believe that the level of passion and intrinsic quality of football culture in Saudi Arabia is an important factor for success. The presence of the best players in the Saudi professional league shows the growth potential of national football,” he explained. 카지노
He went on to say, “The world saw the great potential of the Saudi national team, which performed exceptionally well at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “We accelerated and left our mark on the international stage. We have the potential to improve further. The squad is strong and has talented players. We believe that if we work hard, we can lift our game.”
Saudi Football Federation President Yasser Al-Misehal said: “We are delighted to welcome Mancini as national team coach. His experience and his experience with the club and national team is a significant step forward towards our goals in international football. He is competitive with Saudi football. “I believe that we will develop our players and lead them to greater heights on the world stage.” The chairman set goals for success in the upcoming Asian Cup in Qatar and advancement to the World Cup finals in North and Central America.
Mancini began his coaching career as Lazio’s assistant coach in 2000. After a month of playing for Leicester City in 2001, he was offered the position of manager of Fiorentina, and retired from playing again, continuing his managerial career.
Since then, Mancini, who has built a managerial career in Italy such as Lazio and Inter Milan, led Inter Milan to three consecutive Serie A championships from the 2005/06 season to the 2007/08 season, rising to the ranks of masters.
Mancini took over as manager of Manchester City in 2009, which was bought by Sheikh Mansour’s royal family capital. He received full support and strengthened the squad and led the club to its first Premier League title in the 2011/12 season.
After leaving Manchester City at the end of the 2012/13 season, Mancini went through Galatasaray, Inter Milan, and Zenit St. Petersburg before taking over as coach of the Italian national team in May 2018.
Italy, which underwent extensive internal reforms after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, led Italy to win the UEFA Euro 2020 by appointing various players and organizing well under manager Mancini. It was meaningful as it was the first Euro win in 53 years since the 1968 tournament held in their home country.
Mancini stepped down as head coach of the Italian national team in early August. He recorded 39 wins, 13 draws and 9 losses for the Italian national team.
Saudi Arabia, led by Mancini, will play a September A match against Costa Rica and South Korea at St James’ Park in Newcastle on both the 9th and 13th.
