Roberto Mancini has made it clear that he is on the hunt for a new club following a season away from coaching.
Mancini was sacked by Inter prior to the commencement of the season, despite winning a third successive Scudetto last term. Jose Mourinho was called in as his replacement, in an effort to improve the club’s chances of succeeding in Europe, something that obviously did not eventuate.
With the 44-year-old on the lookout for a new home, many clubs have been strongly linked with a move for him, including Roma, a team that he has recently spoken about in an interview.
“Yes, I have said that I would like to return to coaching; however, I do not see myself at Roma next season,” Mancini claimed in an interview with SkySport24.
“At the moment there is nothing with them, as they haven’t spoken to me.”
The well-respected coach has previously stated that he would be interested in a challenge abroad, if it were to come his way. But if an Italian club did approach him, he would have one simple request.
He said, “If I were to remain in Italy, I would want to fight to win the Scudetto. However, again, I will not rule out an experience abroad.”
