Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is eager to get back to work, “hopefully for a country at the World Cup.”
The tactician was fired by City before the season concluded and is now in Italy on vacation.
“I want to get back to work on a bench soon, hopefully for a country at the World Cup,” he told caprinews.
“I already had a few chats, but the important thing is to find a project that is stimulating.
“Would I return to the Premier League? Yes, I am open to offers from England, France, Italy or even a national side.
“At times opportunities materialise when you least expect them.”
It is possible Mancini could go to China, as the national team is set to fire Coach Jose Antonio Camacho.
Italian tacticians are already popular in China thanks to Marcello Lippi at the helm of Guangzhou Evergrande.
