Vágner do Carmo Mancini (born 24 October 1966) is a Brazilian football manager and former player who played as a midfielder. He is the current manager of Atlético Mineiro.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Mancini started his career with Guarani in 1988. He subsequently went on to represent Portuguesa, Bragantino and Botafogo-SP before joining Grêmio in 1995.

Mancini featured sparingly for the club during the season, being crowned champions of 1995 Copa Libertadores but losing the 1995 Copa do Brasil to Corinthians; he was sent off in the first leg of the latter competition's final.[1] Subsequently, he went on to play for São José-SP, Coritiba, Ponte Preta, Sãocarlense, Ceará, Figueirense, Sport, Ituano and Paulista, retiring with the latter in 2004 at the age of 37.

In 1999, while injured at Sãocarlense, Mancini took over as an interim manager for ten days.[2]

Managerial career[edit]

In May 2004, while still actively playing for Paulista, Mancini opted to retire after receiving a manager offer.[3] He was crowned champions of the 2005 Copa do Brasil with the side before accepting an offer from Al Nasr SC.

On 10 December 2007, Mancini returned to Brazil after being appointed manager of former club Grêmio.[4] He was sacked the following 14 February, despite being unbeaten,[5] and was named Vitória manager on 25 March.[6]

On 15 February 2009, Mancini left Vitória and was announced as manager of Santos.[7] Relieved from his duties on 13 July,[8] he returned to Vitória on 12 August.[9]

On 11 December 2009, Mancini was appointed manager of Vasco da Gama,[10] but was dismissed on 25 March of the following year.[11] On 15 April 2010 he was presented at another club he represented as a player, Guarani,[12] but after failing to avoid relegation, he resigned on 5 December.[13]

On 26 September 2011, after a short stint at Ceará, Mancini was appointed as new head coach of Cruzeiro.[14] The following 10 May, he resigned after being knocked out of two competitions in the same week.[15]

On 15 May 2012, Mancini signed with Sport (another club he represented as a player) until the end of the year.[16] He was sacked on 11 August, and joined Náutico the following 1 February.[17]

Dismissed on 8 April 2013,[18] Mancini was appointed at the helm of Atlético Paranaense on 10 July,[19] with the club in the relegation places. He managed to reach the finals of the 2013 Copa do Brasil, while also finishing third in the league; his contract, nonetheless, was not renewed.

After two consecutive relegations with Botafogo and Vitória,[20] Mancini was appointed as new head coach of Chapecoense on 9 December 2016.[21] He was relieved from his duties on 4 July 2017, after a 3–3 draw against Fluminense.[22]

On 25 July 2017, Mancini returned to Vitória for a fourth stint,[23] and managed to narrowly avoid relegation at the end of the season. On 29 July of the following year, after a 4–0 loss at Atlético Paranaense, he was dismissed.[24]

On 2 January 2019, Mancini joined São Paulo FC as the club's technical coordinator.[25] On 14 February, he was named interim manager after the club announced a deal with Cuca, out due to health problems;[26] in April, as Cuca was given the green light to manage, he returned to his previous role.

On 14 October 2019, after leaving São Paulo, Mancini was appointed manager of Atlético Mineiro until the end of the season.[27]

Personal life[edit]

Mancini's son Matheus is also a footballer. A centre back, he plays for Académica de Coimbra.
