Results in the Champions League were blamed on the fact that Mancini may have his head somewhere else following all the rumours and the latest one is another former club of his…..

Manchester City but Luis Enrique took the reigns after leaving as Spain National team head coach

Roberto Mancini has rejected Villarreal’s approach for his services. He delayed his decision for a couple of weeks but today publicly announced his decision to stay at Olympiakos until at least the end of the season.
Villarreal are 16th in LA LIGA after 22 games and are just 4 points off the relegation places so Mancini’s job would be like no other he has had before.
Roberto Mancini: “Hello everybody I am here today to tell you that I was approached by Villarreal a couple of weeks ago but I put my decision on hold to talk to my family and see how they felt about it but I also had to think what is best for my career now and staying here is what I want. Due to the fact we have two trophies still on offer that was a reason I couldn’t leave the club it wouldn’t be fair as the club has done a lot for me. Thank you and I will see you soon.”

January – April

Olympiakos having been knocked out of the Champions League as early as the group stage had to show the fans what they could do.
Despite interest from lots of clubs Roberto Mancini stayed with the club and guided them to the double winning the Super League and cup for the second season running. Even though the Greek Super League isn’t the most competitive PAOK had a good go losing only once back in October before facing Olympiakos at home a 2-1 loss with 6 games remaining the title race was all but over so on matchday 28 and 29 they lost successive matches against AEK Athens and then bottom of the table PAS Giannina.
In the cup Olympiakos were favourites after breezing through the groups and making light work of the teams that stood in their way to the final against AEK Athens. Athens went through top of their group with 1 loss against PAOK who didn’t manage to progress and then they lost another in the semi-final second leg having had a 2-0 advantage from the first. It took Olympiakos 32 minutes to go ahead Brown Ideye with his 27th goal in 42 appearances 7 minutes later Yaya Toure scored his 19th goal. Just after the break Athens winger Adrian Embarba scored for a nervy last minutes for the reigning Champions but they held out for the win.

Olympiakos are just two matches away from levelling their 1972-74 58 matches without losing in the league. They went through the whole season unbeaten in the league and cup with an overall record of:

P- 46


Roberto Mancini has left his position as manager of Olympiakos after two seasons at the helm. Mancini won the double twice in his time as head coach and has been rumoured to leave Piraeus for more than 6 months but he finally left due to not renewing his contract with the Greek Giants.

What's next for the Italian?
Interesting development, wonder where he'll end up next!

He's moving back to Italy!
Breaking News!

Roberto Mancini has been announced as Napoli manager. After a summer of clubs linked with the Italian including the likes of AS Roma, Tottenham Hotspur and AS Monaco he has moved to Naples. Mancini also had job offers from Serbia, Belgium and Portugal but didn’t think International management was for him at the time.
Here is what he had to say in his welcoming press conference

“Hello everybody I am so glad happy to be back in Italy after 3 years away from home. I also wanted to let the fans of Napoli know that it was an honour to be asked to manage this famous club who have had players like Maradona. Then there is club legend Marek Hamšik who no matter what has stayed loyal. I hope to do bring the good times back to this club and put my mark on their history. Thankyou.”

Yeah I think he will do well considering Insigne asked to leave but I blocked the move so that's his replacement.
