Roberto Mancini has again stressed that he is planning to stay as Manchester City manager and is not looking to return to Italy.
The former Inter Milan coach only took charge at City back in December, but has already been linked with a move back to Serie A.
Though Inter have ruled out appointing Mancini to replace Jose Mourinho at Giuseppe Meazza, there are other coaching vacancies in the Italian top flight.
However, Mancini is enjoying being a manager in the Premier League and is not seeking an exit from the City of Manchester Stadium.
"I miss Italy, but in England the football is beautiful and, for me, this is a beautiful experience," said Mancini.
The City boss also ruled out making a bid for Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik as he looks to build a squad capable of challenging for the title next season.
He added: "Hamsik is not part of Manchester City's plans."
Mancini is in Naples where he testified on Tuesday morning for 15 minutes in the criminal trial into the Italian match-fixing scandal.
He was called in as a witness in the trial that includes former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi and former referee selector Paolo Bergamo as defendants.
