Former Leicester City player Roberto Mancini has reportedly turned down the chance to manage the Premier League champions according to various reports in England.
Mancini was heavily tipped to replace sacked manager Claudio Ranieri but the Italian reportedly told the club he is not interested in the job.
Even though he is without a club since leaving Inter-Milan last year, the former Manchester City coach is not keen on handling the club where Nigerian duo Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa ply their trade.
The Premier League champions are presently one point above the drop zone, and lost the first leg of their round of 16 UEFA League clash against Sevilla 1-2 in Spain on Tuesday.
