Italy CT Roberto Mancini said he’s not thinking about returning at club level. ‘I’m focused on the Azzurri, coaching them is the best thing’.
Yesterday, Mancini Day was staged in his hometown Jesi and the Azzurri CT received a warm welcome in the sports hall after the success at the European Championship.
Mancini recalled the success at Wembley and spoke about his future with the international team.
“A great joy and awareness of transmitting that sense of belonging that inherent in us Italians,” Mancini said, according to IlRestoDelCarlino.it.
“We often talked about it with the players, the common target was to do something special for our fans. Knowing that we had the support of an entire nation behind us, pushed us towards goals that many thought were unreachable.”
He was then asked if he has considered returning to coach a club in the near future, but stressed he only focuses on the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
“Now, there’s the World Cup, we have to quickly qualify, and we must try to win the UEFA Nations League.
“I don’t think about the clubs, and I’m focused on the national team. Coaching the national team is the best thing.”
