Chelsea yet to make contact with former Inter boss

Roberto Mancini's advisor has confirmed that his client has received no contact from Chelsea.

The former Internazionale coach left the Serie A champions on Wednesday and has been strongly linked with the vacant managerial post at Stamford Bridge.

Mancini has made no secret of his desire to coach a side capable of challenging for the UEFA Champions League and would get that opportunity with the Blues.

However, with the dust still settling on his deaprturee from Giuseppe Meazza, Maurizio de Giorgis has made it clear that no decision regarding his future has been made as yet.


"He had a meeting with the president (Massimo Moratti) and they decided not to continue with him, as of yesterday Roberto Mancini is not the coach of Inter Milan anymore," the Italian's advisor told Sky Sports News.

"He is very disappointed of course, he was not expecting that to happen, but in football things can happen quickly and unexpectedly and this is one of those occasions.

"As of now there is no contact with Chelsea. Roberto Mancini is not a person or coach who likes to propose himself to a club, he waits for a club to look after him so we are in that position right now. We are not proposing Mancini to any club.

"It's a natural consequence of what has happened. Chelsea are one of the top five clubs in the world so it is more likely, if there will be any talk, there is more chances of it to happen now than before.

"There are chances but at the moment, as of today, there has been no official contact with Chelsea or any other team."
