Galatasaray snub David Moyes in favour of Cesare Prandelli

Cesare PrandelliGalatasaray have snubbed David Moyes and appointed Cesare Prandelli as their new manager. The Italian makes an instant return to the dugout having only recently quit Italy following their World Cup heartache. The deal will be confirmed on Tuesday afternoon, with Prandelli all set to sign a two-year contract at the Turk Telekom Arena.

The Turkish giants were left managerless this time last month after Roberto Mancini departed by mutual consent. The Istanbul club were then hotly linked with Moyes last month, while they also reportedly had their eye on Joachim Löw and Jürgen Klinsmann.

However, Prandelli's sudden availability saw Galatasaray alter their focus as they jumped at the chance to snap up the experienced boss. The 56-year-old has previously taken charge of the likes of Roma and Fiorentina, before replacing Marcello Lippi in charge of Italy four years ago.

In Prendelli’s first major tournament he led the Azzurri to the final of Euro 2012, which was followed by a third-placed finish in the Confederation Cup a year later. However, he was unable to make an impact at the World Cup, with Italy suffering an early exit.

Last season Galatasaray won the Turkish Cup, finished second to rivals Fenerbahce in the Super Lig, while they failed to venture out of the Champions League group stages, with their Europa Cup journey abruptly ended in the last-16. Prandelli will now be expected to win the league title as well as making waves in Europe.

Meanwhile Mancini remains the evens favourite with Paddy Power to replace Pranelli as the manager of Italy. Francesco Guidolin is still in the mix at 3/1, with Massimiliano Allegri at 4/1, whereas the under-fire Russia boss Fabio Capello is back at 12/1.
