Mancini led Manchester City to their first English title in 44 years in 2012, and won three Serie A titles with Inter Milan and Italian Cups with Inter, Fiorentina and Lazio. And the former Italian international has said he wants to take over as national coach to fulfil his dream of winning the World Cup. The former Lazio and Sampdoria forward never became a regular with Italy during his 10-year international career, during which he won 36 caps and scored four goals. He reached the semi-finals of Euro 1988, and was in the squad that finished third in the 1990 World Cup on home soil.
