Italy coach Roberto Mancini has resigned on Sunday August 13, ending his tenure with the national team that included a European Championship title in 2021 but also a failed qualification for last year’s World Cup.

The Italian Soccer Federation gave a short declaration saying that Mancini communicated his renunciation to them, adding that a new coach would be named in the next few days.
