Former Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has cited the United States and Japan as possible destinations for him to make his return to the game.

Trapattoni, 74, parted company with Ireland in September and is keen to get back into management.

He told Radio Anch’io Sport: “I have a lot of offers, from America and Japan, but I can’t make a mistake in my decision.

“I’ll have a few meetings soon where I will decide whether to go east or west.

“I still have great enthusiasm, I want to carry on.”
