Roberto Mancini tempted by Juventus job

Table of Contents
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini claims he would welcome the opportunity to take charge of Juventus should he return to his homeland.

The Italian, who was appointed City boss on Boxing Day last year, has a clause in his three-and-a-half-year contract that would allow him to walk away from Eastlands in the summer.

His future is thought to be hanging on whether he can steer City to Champions League qualification this season.

But wherever the Citizens finish, the lure of Juventus - the team he supported as a boy - could be too strong for Mancini to resist.

He told Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore: "I'm ready to go back, if and when there will be a possibility.

"As for Juventus - Juve is always Juve. They are going through a difficult period right now but we are talking about a club with history and prestige, made up of many victories.

"I am considered an enemy for my past at Inter Milan, but I want to reiterate that controversies of the past were personal and related to certain individuals, and I have said many times that I was a Juventus fan when I was a child.

"How near I am to a return to Italy I don't know, football is strange. It was probably right for me to broaden my horizons, but I will return sooner or later."
