Video: Roberto Mancini Confirms He Did Give the Middle Finger to AC Milan Fans

Roberto Mancini had absolutely no problem admitting that he gave the middle finger to AC Milan fans as he was sent off in the Milan derby earlier tonight.

The Inter Milan boss was sent to the stands in the 50th minute of the San Siro clash for comments he made towards the referee and his officials after they failed to give his team a penalty.

And eagle-eyed viewers of the game spotted Mancini giving one finger to supporters as he made his way from the touchline and back into the stands:

Asked about the video post-match, the former Manchester City boss refused to deny he made the abusive gesture to supporters – even going as far as losing his temper with a reporter who questioned him on TV about it.

Marco Messina of Italian Football TV shared two quotes from Mancini in his post-match interview:

It’s refreshing to see a manager actually see something bad for once – and funny that Mancini was happy to confirm he made the inflammatory gesture towards rival supporters.

But he’ll no doubt face a ban for being ordered off and for the middle finger abuse.

On a thoroughly bad night for Mancini, his side ended up losing 3-0 to their rivals too.
