Mancini: 'Under contract with Zenit'

Roberto Mancini has arrived in Italy, but shrugged off questions about the Azzurri job. “I’m under contract with Zenit.”

The tactician has been named as one of the potential replacements for sacked Giampiero Ventura by new FIGC Commissioners Roberto Fabbricini and Alessandro Costacurta.

Mancio landed in Italy today with his Zenit St Petersburg squad for a training camp.

He was asked at the airport if he will also be using the opportunity to meet Costacurta.

“I’m under contract with Zenit, how can I?” was the response.

“All we are focusing on now is how to overturn yesterday’s result.”

Zenit lost the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 to Celtic, falling 1-0 in Glasgow.
