thumbnail Hello,

A number of recent reports suggest that the former Netherlands international is one of the candidates to replace Roberto Mancini this summer after impressing at Feyenoord

Feyenoord manager Ronald Koeman says that he is unaware of any potential Manchester City interest amid ongoing rumours that the Premier League champions see him as the ideal replacement for Roberto Mancini.

The Italian's future at the Etihad Stadium is in doubt following a second consecutive Champions League group stage elimination and looking likely to concede the title to rivals Manchester United, with the Dutchman reportedly one of the candidates to take his place.

Koeman has played a key role in Feyenoord's re-emergence in the past two seasons and the Eredivisie side's good results have allegedly not gone unnoticed in Manchester.

"Players who develop into internationals attract the interest of bigger clubs and it's only logical that the coach is mentioned in the press as well at some point if things go well," Koeman was quoted as saying by Voetbal International.

"Aside from that, I cannot say anything else about it, simply because I don't know anything about any interest."

Koeman took charge of Feyenoord in the summer of 2011 and guided them to second place in Eredivisie last season. They currently sit third in the league table.
