From the author of the bestselling Messi and Ronaldo, a revealing and very readable biography of the Manchester City manager. When Roberto Mancini was appointed to Manchester City in late 2009, he came from his native Italy with an almost peerless cup-winning pedigree at both Lazio and Inter Milan. In his first full season at City, Mancini guided the club to Champions League football and the FA Cup, shaping the squad into one of the most successful teams in the Premier League. Luca Caioli gives Mancini’s inside story from his early days as an international player to his emergence as a charismatic, if controversial, pitch-side leader. The book contains exclusive personal interviews with Roberto himself, alongside recollections from star players and colleagues like Javier Zannetti, Sergio Aguero and Arrigo Sacchi, unveiling the life of one of the modern game’s great managers.
