The former Italy international has only been in charge at City since December 2009, but reports in his homeland have linked Mancini with a return to Serie A this summer.

"I miss Italy as a country but football in England is beautiful," Mancini said in Naples after testifying in the criminal trial into the Italian match-fixing scandal. Mancini was called in as a witness in the trial that includes former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi and former referee selector Paolo Bergamo as defendants.

The City boss also denied that Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik is a transfer target despite reports linking the 22-year-old with a move to Eastlands.

"Hamsik is not part of Manchester City's plans," Mancini said.
