The Italian stallion! Roberto Mancini is the football manager who makes viewers pale
From his beautiful looks to his bespoke designer suits, Roberto Mancini has left football fans pale throughout the Euro.
The Italian coach, 56, is the main obstacle between the England squad and the Euro trophy tomorrow night after rebuilding the national team from the ruins of November 2017, when they failed managed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.
He has led Italy to the final so far, without losing a single game – including two impressive 3-0 wins.
And many who watch the games have been blown away by Mancini – who previously worked as Manchester City manager – taking to Twitter in their hordes to call him ‘hot’ and ‘suave’.
Unfortunately for fans who fall for the father of three, he is out of the market, having married the beautiful brunette lawyer Silvia Fortini in 2018.

Unfortunately for fans who fall for the 56-year-old, he’s off the market, having married beautiful brunette lawyer Silvia Fortini in 2018.
But that didn’t stop fans from swooning over idol Mancini, who wore a custom Armani costume on the sidelines throughout the tournament.
One took to Twitter to write, “Why do I find Roberto Mancini sexy? Someone is helping me. ‘
Another wrote: “I’m just saying I always thought Roberto Mancini was pretty sexy.”
“Oh my word! Roberto Mancini looks so cool and suave in his costume, ”wrote a third. “The Italia soccer jersey is the best design of the tournament in my opinion.”
Another added: “Roberto Mancini is still watching the business. From her well-cut suits to her gray lock in her hair. Italians are just style.
Born in a small town in Marche, eastern Italy in 1964, Mancini made his football debut for Bologna FC in 1981.

The following year, he was bought by Sampdoria, for £ 2.2million, and he remained at the club until 1997.
He then joined Leicester City on loan in January 2001 and made his debut in a 0-0 draw with Arsenal in January 2001.
He failed to complete a full 90 minutes in his five appearances for the club, and his last game was a 2-1 loss to Everton the following month.
The master designer abruptly ended his playing career in February 2001 when he accepted an offer to join Fiorentina as manager and returned to his native Italy.
Mancini has received praise from former colleagues, with some calling him an “absolute gentleman” and others calling him a “better guy”

He then led the Roman team of SS Lazio from 2002 to 2004, before taking over the reins of Inter Milan for four years.
After a one-year hiatus from football, in 2009 he returned to the UK and signed as manager at Manchester City following the sacking of Mark Hughes, where he is credited with making them big winners of trophies.
But he had actually made his mark on the English Premier League a decade earlier during his brief stint at Leicester City as a player.

Peter Taylor was Leicester boss when Mancini arrived, but the deal was first suggested by a mutual friend, former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson.
Taylor had coached England Under-21 at the start of the Eriksson era while Mancini had worked under the Swede at Sampdoria and Lazio.
Taylor recently praised Mancini saying: “He was an absolute gentleman, a top guy – very serious about what he did. He didn’t just come to training and came home. He watched everything we did closely.
“He was talking to me about the importance of team spirit and his strength at Leicester.
Mancini was married to his first wife Federica Morelli for 26 years before the couple split in 2016 and he subsequently married Silvia Fortini in 2018 (pictured)
“I think he saw with us how vital it was to develop that, rather than just treating the players the way you want. Roberto did this with Italy for what he is: a serious professional and consistent. ‘
Taylor knew it would take time for Mancini to adjust to the speed of the Premier League, but he still felt it was worth it because of what he could bring to the team.
“We knew he wasn’t going to be in great shape right away, but the team loved him,” Taylor added. “You could tell how much they wanted to talk to him about his life and his career. They were eager to have coffee with him.
And Mancini clearly brought the Italian squad together today, with pundits praising him for the team spirit.

Former England captain Shearer recently told Match of The Day: ‘You have to complement Mancini and his team. What a team of character he has, 33 unbeaten matches for Italy.
“The unity that they have in this team with their abilities, they are going to be very difficult to beat in the final.”
Mancini was married to his first wife Federica Morelli for 26 years before the couple separated in 2016.
The couple have three children, son Filippo, 30, and Andrea, 28, both professional footballers, and daughter Camilla, 27.
