Roberto Mancini has scotched rumours claiming he has been approached to take charge of Juventus.
The Manchester City manager admits he is flattered to be linked with the Old Lady but insists he is happy with life at Eastlands.
Mancini, whose City side beat Fulham on Sunday, attended the Cottagers’ Europa League victory over Juventus, prompting talk of a possible return to Serie A.
Alberto Zaccheroni replaced the sacked Ciro Ferrara back in January until the end of the season and Juve are on the look out for a permanent coach.
Reports suggest Juve director-general Roberto Bettega broached the subject with Mancini at Craven Cottage but the former Inter coach insists he is not thinking of a return to Italy.
“I was at the stadium on Thursday simply because today we were meeting Fulham in the league so I wanted to watch the show there,” Mancini was quoted as saying in the Italian press.
“I am honoured that my name has been linked to that of Juventus but there is no truth at all.”
Mancini signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with City when he moved to the Premier League in December.
