thumbnail Hello,

The former Inter boss has his heart set on coaching outside of the peninsula...

Roberto Mancini has vowed that he will not return to Italy to coach any time soon, but is keen on trying to guide a foreign side to glory.

The former Inter coach has been out of action since he was sacked by the club last year. Mancini has been linked with a number of clubs both in England and Italy. He has been previously linked with Chelsea and Manchester City, but those rumours have been weakened following City's faith in Mark Hughes, as well as the Blues' penchant for AC Milan's Carlo Ancelotti.

Mancini is keen on returning to the bench, but far from Serie A.

"My future is away from Italy. I don't have any offers at the moment, but I am not in any rush," Mancini told Radio Viola.

"I hope that a foreign team is the one which contacts me."

Speculation in the Italian press has linked 'Mancio' with an outside chance of returning to the Nerazzurri if Jose Mourinho was to leave, but the coach reiterated his desire for an adventure outside of Italy.

"You never know what may happen in life. You might say something and then do the opposite. In any case, my desire is to coach abroad after many years in Italy," concluded Mancini.
