Inter Milan chief Zanetti: Italy need coach like Mancini

Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti says Roberto Mancini is the right coach for Italy.

Zanetti recognises Mancini faces a challenge to put together a successful team.

“After failing to qualify for the World Cup, it's necessary to work to improve young Italians," Zanetti agreed, speaking to ANSA.

“Mancini is certainly the right person for that. In the league though, regardless of nationality, I think talent must be rewarded.

“Basically whoever is the best plays.

“The Italian national team needs to start again and needs the best young players. We're all happy when there are good Italian players on the pitch, it reflects well on a club's youth system."
