Mancini ready to quit Italy

Coach Roberto Mancini has revealed that Inter will be his last Italian club after Sunday’s physical attack on his players.

Clearly upset after a group of so-called fans verbally abused members of his squad and injured Cristiano Zanetti on their return from Ascoli, the tactician says he’s had enough of the Italian game.

“This incident has speeded up my desire to go and work abroad,” the Coach stated on Monday afternoon.

“One thing is for certain, I won’t work in Italy again once my career at Inter comes to an end,” he pledged.

“I’m tired of these situations and I don’t really want to talk about it because these things have nothing to do with football, no matter if some people think they do.”

Mancio has had his most testing week at the club since he replaced Alberto Zaccheroni in the summer of 2004.

With the Scudetto already lost, he and his squad have been heavily criticised by their own fans following their Champions League reverse at Villarreal.

“There is still a desire for me to carry on because I love football, I love working on the pitch with players,” he continued.

“I don’t do this job for money as some people have claimed in the past. It’s the passion which keeps me going.

“However, Italy is a country where you can’t win and enjoy a victory because if you lose then you are forced to not only think about the defeat, but other things too.”

Mancini, who spent a brief spell in England with Leicester City as a player, took up coaching with Fiorentina before moving to Lazio
