Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says that he would be open to managing a club in the Serie A in the future, but is currently enjoying a break at the moment.
The 48-year-old has been without work since he was sacked at City in May following their loss of the Premier League title and defeat to Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup final.
The Italian, who made a name for himself during spells at Lazio and Inter Milan, said that he was in no rush to get back on the bench, but would consider a number of jobs when he is ready to get back into the game.
"I have time to come back to Italy, as I am still young," Mancini told Sky Sports Italia. "Staying abroad, or being put in charge of a national team, could also be a good experience.
"However, I'm happy with this time off. I've done this work for many years, and there is always so much pressure. Going forward relentlessly is not easy."
Mancini also said that he was happy with what he achieved at City, despite the club deciding to change manager at the end of last term.
"We did things well with a team that hadn't won for 50 years," he said. "I brought in three throphies, so I am very happy with what I achieved there."
