Inter Milan defender Ivan Cordoba is keen to join former coach Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.

Mancini is a big admirer of Cordoba and the Colombian international admits he would love the chance to work under Mancini again and play in the Premier League.

Cordoba said: “If he wants me at Manchester City then I would think about it.

“Mancini is a great coach and works in a very modern way. I worked with him at Inter Milan and I believe he’ll have a great success in the Premier League. A great coach should be given a big challenge and nobody can doubt Mancini can achieve a great deal with Manchester City. One of his biggest attributes is his direct contact with players.

“He is not one of these coaches who leaves all the work to his assistants. He varies the training all the time and we never got bored during the week.

“He always insisted that it was important to get the training right because it would have a big impact on how we performed in the league games.

“The problem he could face is adapting fast to the English game because the league there is a lot different, but he has all the qualities to do really well.”
