New Galatasaray coach Mancini ready for Juve test

01 October 2013, 22:16

Turin - Galatasaray's new coach Roberto Mancini knows that facing Juventus in the Champions League just two days after taking charge of the Turkish team is going to be tough, but hopes his Italian background will be an advantage.

Mancini, who was confirmed as Fatih Terim's replacement on Monday, spent almost his entire managerial career in Italy — with Fiorentina, Lazio and Inter Milan — before joining Manchester City in 2009.

On Tuesday, the Italian says "obviously it's a handicap, but it's a squad that knows each other, has been playing together for a while, so I'm lucky. And in football luck counts a lot ... The advantage is that I know Juve well."

Mancini adds he is "very happy" to see Juventus striker Carlos Tevez again, after coaching him at City.
