Roberto Mancini's No2 at Inter Milan, Sinisa Mihajlovic, says the sacked coach could handle the pressure of managing Chelsea.

Mihajlovic said: "I don't consider Chelsea to be a club superior to Inter in terms of history. It is for that reason I say Roberto could easily manage Chelsea and do well.

"Mancini has been at Inter for four years and has won a lot. I think his future is abroad. The Premiership has always fascinated Roberto."

The Serb confirmed that he would follow Mancini to London, saying: "My future is linked with Roberto for now. Where he goes, I will follow as we are a bonded by a profound friendship."
