Mancini admits he'd like to coach the national team.
“I was sorry to have thrown away a year and a half of exhausting work," said Mancini.
“Had I stayed, we'd have got close to rivalling Juventus.
“I'd like to coach abroad and the national team. Now it's full of attractive young players: Rugani, Chiesa, Bernardeschi and Berardi.
“Within four years, we'll have a great national, perhaps even earlier than that.
