Juventus is hosting the Turkish side Galatasaray in the second round of Champions League group stage play. In the first game, against Real Madrid, Galatasaray was blown out at home 6-1. They fired their manager and signed former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to a three year deal.
“I am very happy to have arrived to a great club like Galatasaray,” Mancini said, via ESPN FC. “This is a beautiful and interesting challenge and I believe I have made the right choice.
“Wednesday’s game against Juve will be very important and for me this is a happy coincidence.”
Juventus coach Antonio Conte praised Mancini’s hiring.
“It’s a pleasure to come up against Mancini,” he said. “He’s won in Italy and he’s won abroad.
“I rate him as one of the best coaches in Europe and it’s only right that he’s back in the game, and Galatasaray have strengthened further with his arrival.
