Roberto Mancini (born 27 November 1964) is an Italian football manager and former player, currently in charge as head coach of F.C. Internazionale Milano. As a player Mancini was best known for his time at Sampdoria, where he played more than 550 matches, and helped them win the Serie A league title, four Coppe Italia and the European Cup Winners' Cup.
In 2004, Mancini was given the chance to manage a major club with more resources when he was offered the manager's job at Inter Milan. During his first tenure at Inter, the club won three consecutive Serie A titles — an Inter club record — and a European record 17 consecutive league game victories stretching nearly half a season; Mancini became Inter's most successful manager in 30 years.
Mancini was appointed Manchester City manager in December 2009. Under his stewardship, he instilled a winning culture at the club taking Manchester City from a mid-table club to the pinnacle of English football. In the 2010-11 season, Mancini guided the club to Champions League football and the FA Cup. In the 2011-12 season, Mancini guided Manchester City to the club's first league title in 44 years, in an enthralling last day of the season, winning 3–2. Under Mancini, Manchester City progressed to the 2013 FA Cup Final, but were defeated by Wigan Athletic.
