Devis Mangia (born 6 June 1974) is an Italian association football manager, currently in charge as head coach of Serie A club Palermo.

Managing career

Mangia started his coaching career at age 30, working alongside Sean Sogliano at Eccellenza club Varese and leading them to two promotion, and back into professionalism, in three years. He successively worked at Serie D and Serie C2 clubs from the Northern Italy such as Tritium, Ivrea and Valenzana. In 2010 he returned at Varese, this time as youth coach, and guided a team composed by unknown youngsters to a spot in the Campionato Primavera final. Later in June 2011 he followed Sogliano at Palermo, but on 31 August he was surprisingly appointed as temporary head coach following the dismissal of Stefano Pioli;[1] despite not having the required coaching badges, he was allowed to serve as head coach due to having been admitted to the national 2011–12 UEFA Pro license course.[2] His first game in charge of team duties, played on 11 September against European powerhouse Inter, saw Palermo, now switched to a brand-new 4–4–2 tactical disposition, achieving an astonishing 4–3 win thanks to a brace from captain Fabrizio Miccoli.[3] Under Mangia's tenure, Palermo significantly improved and achieved three wins and 10 points in the first five Serie A games, including a consecutive two games with a clean sheet, a relevant feat for what was the second-worst defence in the previous season; such results, together with the strict relationship between Mangia and director of football Sean Sogliano and Delio Rossi's confirmed refusal of a Palermo comeback, led the press to speculate about the possibility of him being offered a new contract as permanent head coach. Despite Sogliano's resignation as director of football on 2 November 2011, Mangia was then eventually offered a two-year contract as head coach, which he signed on 4 November 2011.[4]
