DONCASTER Rovers are ready to make Richie Wellens their new boss - and bring back their former midfield dynamo.

Rovers have picked out Wellens ahead of rivals for the vacancy left by Darren Moore’s departure to Sheffield Wednesday.

Wellens was sacked by Salford in March

Wellens played for Rovers at the height of his playing career and leapt at the challenge after leaving Salford a couple of months ago.

He was sacked by the League Two side after showdown talks with owner Gary Neville in March.

Wellens had taken Swindon into League One last season but quit to return to his home town of Manchester.

However, with the ambitious Class of '92 outfit sitting six points off the play-offs, he was let go.

It came after SunSport exclusively revealed that co-owner Neville had held a huge inquest into Salford’s shaky promotion campaign.

Gary Bowyer then took charge until the end of the season to save their push to go up following Wellens’ sacking.

The tactician secured 20 points from 11 games, but it wasn't enough and left Salford two points shy of a play-off place.

And this week he has been handed a two-year deal at the club after appearing to be heading back to his role as Derby U-23s boss.

Doncaster have been led by caretaker boss Andy Butler since Moore's departure in March.

But results have gone against him, with Rovers winning just four of his 18 league games in charge and finishing a disappointing 14th in League One.

He will return to running the Belles side, while Wellens is one of three candidates to be shortlisted for the full-time job.

The former Manchester United starlet, 41, will know his way around the Keepmoat, having played 84 times for Rovers from 2007 to 2009.

Euro 2020 fans hail ‘class act’ Roberto Mancini as Italy boss subs on keeper Sirigu after his own World Cup heartbreak

ROBERTO MANCINI made the unusual decision to bring on goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu in place of Gianluigi Donnarumma against Wales, and received praise from fans for doing so.

Italy dominated proceedings and with Wales a goal and a man down, Mancini felt confident in taking off his number one goalkeeper.

2Roberto Mancini has won all three games at Euro 2020 and used all but one player in the squad

2Salvatore Sirigu replaced Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 89th minute


After all, the Azzuri have now not conceded a goal in eleven matches and limited Wales to just one shot on target.

Sirigu's arrival onto the pitch in the 89th minute means Mancini has now used every one of his 26-man squad, with the exception of keeper Alex Meret.

There were wholesale changes against Wales, with only Donnarumma, Jorginho and Leonardo Bonucci maintaining their place in the side.

Mancini has been keen to offer opportunities to every player in his squad, and stated after the match that he has no definitive starters.

His motivation behind Sirigu's substitution may arise from the fact he missed out on Italia 90 despite being part of the Italy squad, which he has labelled his biggest regret.

And Mancini's desire to hand minutes to even his backup goalkeeper has earned plaudits from fans.

Roberto Mancini made an unusual substitution in the 89th minute today.

He took off Donnarumma and sent Sirigu on.

The thinking behind this was his regret. He was taken to the World Cup in 1990 & never played any game.

He still calls that the biggest regret of his career. ????

Speaking after the victory over Wales, Mancini said: "The guys are very clever and they wanted to win every game, they have a good mentality.

"I'm very happy also for this reason because we changed eight players and we played a very good game."

"The identity has remained the same and I think it is important. I say that changing a few players shouldn't change anything because everyone knows what they have to do, and the product doesn't change.

"Today they have shown that they are all starters. It was a game that we wanted to win even if it could be unneeded, but succeeding was a matter of mentality, it wasn't easy."
