Mancini not on shortlist says agent
Monday 09 February 2009
Roberto Mancini is not a candidate to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari at Chelsea, according to his agent.
Scolari was dismissed today following the Blues' poor results of late.
Mancini, who is unemployed since being sacked by Inter Milan last summer, has been linked with a move to the London club in recent months.
However, his agent Giorgio De Giorgis has had no contact with Chelsea.
De Giorgis said to the Italian media: "No-one has contacted us, hence, I exclude the possibility that Mancini will go to Chelsea.
"We are aware of Scolari's sacking but they would have contacted us in the case they had though about him (Mancini).
"Instead, they have contacted others."
