Mancini open to Italy return after Man City exit

Roberto Mancini says he is open to the possibility of making a return to managing in Serie A after leaving Manchester City, according to Sky Sports.

The 48-year-oldboss was dismissed by the Etihad Stadium hierarchy earlier his month, following a 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup final which consigned City to a season without major silverware.

His sacking brought an end to three-and-a-years as City manager which saw the club compete in the Champions League, pick up its first league title in 44 years as well as win the FA Cup in 2011.

And Mancini has not ruled out a return to management in his native country, where he began his coaching career at Fiorentina and Lazio before spending four years at Inter.

Mancini became the first man to manage in five consecutive Coppa Italia finals between 2004 and 2008 and has won the competition four times as a manager, as well as picking up three Serie A titles with Inter.

The Italian said of a potential return: “Returning to Italy? I don’t know, we’ll see what will happen in the coming weeks. A professional coach can go anywhere if there are chances; it is difficult to say where I will go.
