Video: Roberto Mancini Scores Scandalous Chip Goal in Inter Milan Training

In case you didn’t know, Roberto Mancini hasn’t always been a top European manager.

Before taking over the reins at Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter Milan, Manchester City and Galatasaray, the Italian had a 20-year playing career which included spells at Bologna, Sampdoria, Lazio and Leicester.

He’s also got 36 Italy caps to his name and was included in squads for the European Championships and World Cup during his time with the Azzurri.

So it’s fair to say Mancini could play a little bit – and he still can now, despite retiring in 2001.

The Inter manager regularly joins in with his squad during training and proved he’s still capable of holding his own alongside his current team.

Latching on to a loose ball in a small game, Mancini calmly dinked the ball over backup goalkeeper Tommaso Berni:

How good is that?

That said, it sounds like there was absolutely no reaction from his players after the ball nestled in the net.

Maybe morale is low after the disappointing 3-0 defeat to AC Milan in Sunday’s derby clash.
