Ambitious: mancini wants to try his luck in England

Roberto Mancini wants his next job to be in England.

The Italian has been out of work since parting company with Inter Milan in May 2008 after falling out with Nerazzurri supremo Massimo Moratti.

Mancini has no shortage of admirers in his native Italy after leading Inter to three successive titles, while also claiming silverware in the domestic Italian cups.

But it is the English Premier League he has in his sights.

'I've annulled my deal with Inter because I want to come back coaching,' he told Italian TV show Le Lene.

'Where? I'd prefer the (English) Premiership. I've not coached in more than a year and in this period I've had about three or four proposals.


'But it's not true that I'm not coaching because I want too much money. Money for me has never been the most important thing, either as a player or as a coach.'

Mancini has been touted as a possible replacement for Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez as well as being linked with Portsmouth and League Two Notts County.
