Italy Coach Antonio Conte and captain Gigi Buffon welcomed Roberto Mancini back to Serie A with Inter.
Mancini took over from Walter Mazzarri on the Nerazzurri bench on Friday, returning after six years at Manchester City and Galatasaray.
“As a colleague, I am disappointed for Mazzarri and also give a welcome back to Mancini at an important club like Inter,” said Conte in today’s Press conference.
Buffon was also asked about the situation that saw Inter pull the plug on tactician Mazzarri.
“It was a bolt from the blue, but perhaps something had been stirring over the last few weeks at Inter.
“Mancini’s return can only be a good thing for Italian football. We are talking about a Coach with great charisma who attracts important international level players to his teams.
“Mancini can help us relaunch our football movement on the international stage.”
