Former Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini is ready to return to work.

Mancio is hoping his dismissal from the Inter bench could still prove a positive twist, as he awaits the opportunity to get back into football.

He said: "This is my work and so clearly I miss it a bit, but I am in no hurry. I need to find the right challenge, something that really stimulates me. Football is strange, you never know what will happen."
