Roberto Mancini ruled out the possibility of becoming Manchester United manager

According to the German daily, Manchester United had contacted Italy’s national coach Roberto Mancini regarding the managerial job picture. However, the former Manchester City boss has already ruled out the possibility of taking the reins at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils put an end to their association with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær this week. The Manchester United hierarchy had no choice but to fire the Norwegian after the team’s 4-1 defeat to Watford last weekend.

Michael Carrick has taken over as Manchester United’s interim manager and led the team to a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Red Devils, on the other hand, are reportedly in the hunt for a temporary manager to see them through the season.

Manchester United have been linked with a number of coaches, including Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino, Ernesto Valverde and Erik ten Hag, since firing Solskjær. It has turned out that Italy’s national team manager Mancini was another in consideration by the Red Devils.

According to picture, Manchester United had been in contact with Mancini regarding the managerial role at Old Trafford. However, the former Manchester City manager has already turned down the opportunity.

Mancini is currently in charge of the Italian national team and led the team to the European Championships this summer. The 56-year-old is now determined to help the side book their place at next year’s World Cup.

While Manchester United are reported to have contacted Mancini, it is unclear whether they wanted him to take over as interim manager now or the permanent boss next summer. Either way, the Italian tactician is no longer an option for Old Trafford clothing.

Roberto Mancini is not the only manager to reject Manchester United

Italy manager Roberto Mancini is said to have rejected the chance to take the reins at Manchester United. However, he is not the only one who has rejected the Old Trafford giants.

According to reports, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane also ruled out the possibility of taking over as Manchester United manager. The Frenchman has been without a club since leaving The White, but does not feel like the Red Devils job.

There have been hints that Zidane has opened his eyes to the managerial job at PSG. He could be in line to take the reins of the Ligue 1 club if Mauricio Pochettino leaves them.
