Have England finally found Big Sam’s surprise successor?

Have England finally found Big Sam’s surprise successor?

Since he was reportedly spotted at Wembley for England’s latest World Cup qualifier against Malta, one time Italy international and largely well received Manchester City boss – Roberto Mancini – has subsequently seen his name linked rather heavily with the post most recently occupied by Big Sam Allardyce.

 

After the headline making newspaper allegations that simply served to embarrass Allardyce and destroy his future ambitions as the proud manager of the Three Lions international setup, the F.A. seemingly have it all to do in finally locating the former Bolton, West Ham and Sunderland manager’s long-term successor.

 

So then, as few England fans remain impressed by the prospect of former Middlesbrough centre-back, Gareth Southgate, defiantly waltzing the Three Lions into the next major international tournament with little in the way to hold him back…

 

 

…perhaps Roberto Mancini wouldn’t be such a surprise shout after all…

 

 

In-fact, the former Premier League manager might even represent something of a wise choice in the eyes of some England fans, currently pondering their nation’s chances at the upcoming 2018 World Cup in Russia…

 

 

…even if Mancini does admittedly arrive with a few telling question-marks hanging precariously above his head right in the here and now…

 

 

The England manager’s job would certainly portray itself in a far more stylish light with Big Sam theoretically replaced with the 51-year-old Italian tactician in the not too distant future…

 

 

…despite all the initial hype and expectation originally surrounding Allardyce and what he could have possibly brought to the supposedly illustrious role…

 

 

So whilst such a man hardly represents the ideal option for England at this particular stage in the proceedings…

 

 

…maybe Roberto Mancini arguably represents the best all-round candidate available for the job after Big Sam’s humiliating fall from grace just one game into his once highly sought after England career!
