Former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has been named manager at Turkish outfit Galatasaray.
Prandelli, who resigned after the Azzurris group stage elimination at the Fifa World Cup, succeeds former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini at the Istanbul-based outfit.
Gala and Mancini ended their season-long relationship in June, after which they had initiated the search for a new boss.
A spokesman for the club revealed recently that they’d “exchanged ideas” with former Manchester United manager David Moyes.
Prandelli, 56, guided Italy to the final of Euro 2012, which his side lost 4-0 to Spain.
The former Parma and Fiorentina manager had two years left in his Italy contract before opting out after Brazil.
