Roberto Mancini has expressed his regret at coaching Inter a second time. “Never go back to where you did well because you can only do worse...”
Mancini returned to Inter in November 2014, six years since he ended a hugely-successful spell at the helm, but failed to deliver any silverware and left the club on the eve of the 2016-17 campaign.
“Never go back to where you did well because you can only do worse,” the Coach admitted in a seminar at LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome.
“I went back and don’t know why. I was persuaded, believed I could start a serious project and wanted a bit of time.
“I came back for the affection that binds me to Inter, they were in trouble and I thought [returning] would be a good thing for what Inter had given me over the years.
“Coaches do everything in England, there aren’t executives in tow who decide everything.
“I’m still young, I have other objectives. I definitely won’t go to China but rather I want other experiences in Europe.
“China is a bit out of the way at the moment, but it’s true that we should also look at other things.
“I’ve already coached in England and Turkey, so having experiences in other countries and Leagues would be the best thing.”
