FIGC (Italian Football Federation) is set to take Roberto Mancini to court over compensation when the Italian departed the national team.
Mancini left the Italian national team some weeks ago and he has already joined the Saudi Arabia national team, having managed his first few games already in the recent international break.
Corriere della Sera today state that FIGC want to sue Mancini and want to ask for a compensation for damages from the ex-boss. They have mandated a lawyer to understand if there are grounds to take the Italian the court or not and the feasibility of a potential lawsuit is being looked at.
FIGC believe that Mancini’s exit threw the national team into crisis even though President Gabriele Gravina had initially thought of not taking the matter to the court. But Gravina now believes that FIGC want to sue the ex-Manchester City boss and the matter has been taken to the Federal Council, with Gravina not impressed with the way things ended with Mancini, who also went on to criticise FIGC after abruptly departing.
