Roberto Mancini To Lead Nigeria In 2010 World Cup?

The former Inter tactician has been tipped to join Nigeria...
Roberto Mancini might be heading to World Cup 2010 as coach of Nigeria according to the latest reports in Italy.

Sky Sport Italia claim the former Inter coach has been contacted by the Nigerian Football Association and they have offered him the job. The report claims the Super Eagles are keen to have 'Mancio' lead them out in South Africa.

It is said the lure of the World Cup scenario could tempt Mancini into accepting the offer, meaning there will be three Italian coaches at the tournament, Marcello Lippi with Italy, and Fabio Capello on the England bench.

The Jesi-born tactician has also been linked with Real Madrid, Manchester City, Russia and Notts County.

Despite the report, Mancini has not added any substance to it just yet.
