Former Palermo coach denies AC Milan contact
The 39-year old tactician has been out of work since stepping down as Italy Under-21 coach after he led his team to the final of the 2013 European Under-21 Championship, a game which they lost 4-1 to eventual winners Spain.
“They are things which don’t exist,” Mangia told Sky Sport Italia.
“There’s nothing to it and there never was anything in this sense.
“Then, fortunately nobody brought me up. Besides, I’ve never opened my mouth on this issue.”
