Roberto Mancini is, without a doubt, one of the most overrated managers in football. But why is he so popular that he can select from offers of the most prestigious European football clubs?
Nobody knows and nobody understands the answer to the lead-up question. Roberto Mancini has managed teams like Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter and even Manchester City put faith into him for their most ambitious project of building up one of the strongest teams in Europe. Of course they failed.
Such expectations cannot be reached if you choose one of the most overrated managers in football. You need one of the best managers in the world to be able to execute a project of that size. But why did teams like Inter and Man City believe in Roberto Mancini and why do online betting news in Italy keep linking his name to the biggest football clubs in Europe?
The football player history explains it all?
Might be. Roberto Mancini was a professional football player in Serie A. He played for Bologna, Sampdoria, Lazio and even Leicester City. Mancini also wore the International shirt on 36 occasions. He retired from the English club basically and the athlete switched career paths and became a manager at Fiorentina.
As a manager, Mancini won several Coppa Italia titles with his 3 Italian clubs and he also won Serie A 3 times with Inter. In the years when Juventus were in the lower divisions and no other real challengers were playing in Serie A. He went on to Manchester City where he luckily won the Premier League and the FA Cup. However, he failed to build up a team that was favourites in Europe at online sportsbooks. Mancini is currently unemployed. Maybe the best teams realized he was one of the most overrated managers in football history.
