Roberto Mancini may have been in contact with Sven Goran Eriksson but his agent, Maurizio De Giorgis, has denied reports that his client is taking over as manager of League Two club Notts County.
Mancini in his playing days
Following the departure of Ian McParland on Monday, rumours suggested that Mancini was being lined up to replace him. The Italian has been out of the game after leaving Inter last year but has links with Eriksson having played under him at Sampdoria and Lazio.
But speaking to the Nottingham Evening Post, De Giorgis said:
There has been no contact. He might have spoken to Sven since he joined Notts County but that is not unusual because they are good friends.
There is no truth in it whatsoever, with all the respect for Notts County and their project.
Maybe people have put together Roberto and Notts County because he is good friends with Sven. But you have to remember Roberto has managed Inter Milan.
