Roberto Mancini (pic bottom) has been named as the new manager of Turkish champions Galatasaray on a three-year contract.
The Istanbul club confirmed on Sunday that Mancini had met club directors, posting a photo of the 48-year-old with chief executive Lutfi Aribogan. The Italian replaces Fatih Terim, who was sacked last week after failing to agree a new contract.
City fired Mancini in May.
Galatasaray have made a disappointing start to the Turkish league season, picking up only one win from their first five games. They are in a Champions League group with Real Madrid, who beat them 6-1 in their opening game, Juventus and FC Copenhagen. Mancini won three successive Italian league titles and two Italian Cups with Inter Milan, before winning the FA Cup and Premier League with City.
