Italy national team coach Roberto Mancini has ruled himself out of the Man United job in the summer.
Mancini has been muted as one of the candidates United are considering when they make a permanent appointment when Ralf Rangnick’s interim spell comes to an end.
Asked about the job, Manvity who has managed United bitter rivals Manchester City before insists his only focus is on next year’s World Cup in Qatar where they must negotiate a play-off in March to qualify with a semi-final with North Macedonia followed by a meeting with either Portugal or Turkey.
“A verbal agreement with a Premier League club? All false,” Mancini told to Gazzetta dello Sport. “My only goal is to get to the World Cup and be able to win it.”
