Serbia coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has expressed interest in the Inter Milan job.
Andrea Stramaccioni's future is in doubt after a crisis of results.
"I have never betrayed a dream and I'm not a hypocrite," declared Mihajlovic.
"So if you ask me if I hope to one day coach Inter then I'll say yes. And I would repeat that a thousand times.
"I'm happy that my name is paired with the Inter bench. But I love Inter too much to hope that things go badly in order for me to become a candidate for the job," he insisted.
"Therefore, as an ex and a fan, I hope that Stramaccioni and his side can qualify for the Champions League and maybe even complete an incredible comeback against Tottenham.
"I already have a bench and I'm proud to be the Serbia boss."
