Ex-Inter Milan boss Mancini feels he's being frozen out

Former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini feels he's being frozen out of football.

Asked if he thought it would be this way, Mancini replied: "No, I did not expect it, but on the whole it's only a year since I stopped, a year in which I took a break and waited for a great opportunity from abroad.

"Every now and again I think about it and I don't have a clear response. There is no logic. Anyway, it can happen.

"But if an interesting proposal were to arrive from a club with an important project - not necessarily a title-winning one - I would have no problems signing a part from the contract.

"Every now and again I think that certain attitudes are penalising me. Someone, hopefully, has thought about me and then remembered something that I said or did and decided against calling me.

"Anyway, I don't believe I ever broke the rules. I have always said what I thought without being offensive. Sure I exposed myself, but I believe I showed that I know how to train and do my job well.

"Whoever wants me has to take me analysing the values I express on the bench. I have won with Fiorentina, with Lazio and with Inter. If arguments count instead, then amen. I don't know what to do about it. I can only say it wouldn't be right," Mancini told Il Corriere dello Sport.
