Mancini had been rumoured to be considering his options, but the popular coach insisted that this was not the case.
"It is foolishness," said Mancini. "I've never thought to leave.
"At this moment I am happy to be at Lazio and have the players I do at my disposal.
"I'm flattered that someone thinks of me in Spain - but my thoughts belong exclusively to Lazio.
"It has been a difficult few games, but this is the moment we need to start playing with pride."
Meanwhile, Lazio have appealed against a four match ban for Dejan Stankovic - received after the player insulted a linesman.
