Mancini denies taking Galatasaray job for money

Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini denies he took the job for money.

The former Inter Milan and Manchester City manager was appointed Gala coach last week.

"People in Italy always think I only went to Istanbul for the money," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Aside from the fact contracts are part of our profession, I accepted the proposal because Galatasaray are a prestigious club taking part in the Champions League with a strong history.

"I am also fascinated by the idea of a new experience in a country that is a bridge between Europe and Asia. Turkey is a nation with a fast-developing economy and a history going back millennia."
