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.

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