Italy still producing prize managerial exports from its winning system | Richard Williams

Coverciano outside Florence has been the nerve centre of the Italian game for almost 60 years and the reverence in which it is held by many seems to have had a positive effect on plenty of its graduates

As long as he doesn’t blow it, and nothing in his record suggests that he will, sometime within the next three months Antonio Conte will become the fourth Italian manager to lead a team to the Premier League title. Remarkably, that quartet – in which he would join Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini and Claudio Ranieri – will have claimed the English championship in four of the past eight seasons.

No English-born manager, of course, has won the title since Howard Wilkinson in 1991-92, the year before the Premier League was launched. No Frenchman since 2003-04, no German, Spaniard or Dutchman ever. So this is a considerable distinction for Italian football, and for the work done at Coverciano, Italy’s national technical centre. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of the success of these four men is that they give no impression of having been moulded by a single system.

Roberto Mancini could be tempted to become England’s new manager

• Italian has one year left on contract at Internazionale
• Harry Redknapp will not be considered for England job

Roberto Mancini would be interested in taking on the England manager’s role vacated by Roy Hodgson following the side’s elimination from the European Championship but Harry Redknapp has been ruled out.

Mancini, the Internazionale manager, is keen to explore the possibility of returning to England where a successful four-year spell in charge of Manchester City brought a Premier League title and an FA Cup. His position at San Siro has been cast into some doubt after a takeover by the Chinese retail giant Suning Commerce Group Co Ltd, which has taken a 70% stake in the club at a cost of £220m. Mancini has a year to run on his contract in his second spell in charge of Inter.

Milan v Internazionale: Serie A – live!

6.22pm GMT

Half-empty stadiums, managers insulting each other with homophobic remarks, officials, players and agents being investigated over taxes, Italian football still leaves a lot to be desired in 2016. Except that just about nobody doesn’t enjoy a Milan derby. And except that at the top of Serie A, we have one of the most exciting title races in years, due in the main to Juventus’ awful start to the season and their remarkable recovery since.

Internazionale have played their part in this, a part that is increasingly becoming less prominent. Roberto Mancini’s men sit fourth going into this game, and will close the gap to six points from leaders Napoli if they win tonight. Lose, and one suspects that nine points will be too big a gap to bridge between now and the end of the season: both Napoli and Juventus continued their remarkable league form earlier today with 5-1 and 4-0 victories respectively.

Milan and Internazionale fail to rock San Siro but still draw crowd to dour gig

To see the city rivals face off these days is akin to watching a concert headlined by superstars of music who no longer know how to hit the high notes
Match report: 214th Derby della Madonnina
Serie A table

Expectations were not high for the 214th Derby della Madonnina. Milan and Internazionale occupied ninth and 10th place respectively in the Serie A table. The editors at Corriere della Sera could think of no more optimistic angle for a preview than to list five occasions when the derby was even more dismal.

Among the fixtures recalled was a 0-0 draw from 27 March 1977, a season in which Milan flirted with relegation. So devoid of incident was that particular match that the state broadcaster, Rai, preferred to show archive footage of a decade-old encounter during their evening magazine show, Domenica Sportiva.
