The Saudi Federation makes its final decision regarding the dismissal of Mancini

Saudi media confirmed that the Saudi Football Federation decided to keep Roberto Mancini in his position as coach of the Saudi national team despite the Asian failure.

Al-Akhdar bid farewell to the 2023 Asian Cup in the round of 16 after losing to South Korea on penalties, amid great public anger at the Italian coach’s technical decisions.

Mancini intensified the anger towards him after he left the South Korea match before the final penalty kick, in an act for which he was subjected to investigation and for which he apologized.

Although the coach created disagreements with many senior players, according to reports, he still enjoys great confidence from the Saudi Football Association, and there is no intention of dismissing him.

As for the news circulating that Hervé Renard may return to coach Saudi Arabia, it is baseless. It seems that the French coach is closer to coaching the Egyptian national team in the coming period.

Mancini’s contract with Saudi Arabia extends until the 2027 Asian Cup, scheduled for Saudi Arabia, and there is satisfaction with the technical level shown by the team with him, so he will remain in his position until then unless he finds something new.
