Roberto Mancini was an often speculated candidate for our vacant managerial job following the departure of Claudio Ranieri and he’s now confirmed he would be open to potentially taking the job if the plan was right.

Having been linked in the media regularly, Mancini confirmed that there had not been any contact from our owners previously, but that should change he would certainly listen to their proposals.

Having been with the club for a five game spell during his playing career, ESPN have 52 year old Mancini quoted as saying this week.

‘I played for the Foxes and I am one of their fans, but that does not necessarily mean I will be their manager. I’ve never had any sort of contact with their directors, but then again if they do have a big, valid project in mind…’

Leaving that answer obvious albeit open ended, Mancini went on to say he certainly wasn’t finished in the managerial game and he would like to work abroad once more, but he also has eyes for the national side, so who knows where the future will take him.

‘I want to manage abroad again and I’d also like to manage the national team. I don’t know where my future lies right now, though. Sometimes, managers end up where they are least expected.’

Having been out of work since his departure from Inter Milan weeks before the campaign started, Mancini added.

‘If I had stayed, we would have been so close to challenging Juventus.’
