Galatasaray sign Cesare Prandelli as manager

Galatasaray has signed former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli as manager.

Prandelli resigned from Italy immediately after the Azzurri’s loss to Uruguay in the World Cup, which consigned his team to a disappointing group stage exit.

The Italian signed a two-year contract with the Istanbul side on Tuesday. He replaces Roberto Mancini, who left Galatasaray last month after just nine months in charge.

Prandelli was in charge of Italy for four years, leading the Azzurri to the runners-up spot at the 2012 European Championship.
