Now this is some news. Setanta Sports declares that the son of the Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini is on trial at English Premier League side Manchester City.
Filippo Mancini is only 17 years of age and made his Inter Milan debut against Reggina last week in a Coppa Italia tie and played the remaining 8 minutes of the match. He expressed his gladness at making his cherished Inter Milan debut and all things pointed to an imminent league debut as well.
The news that the two clubs have agreed to put Mancini junior on trial at Man City for two weeks in not quite easily digested. Even after you have considered that Roberto Mancini and Sven-Goran Eriksson are close friends, it is not quite easy to figure just why Mancini junior would play for Man City.
Oh, Ma City are looking for new signings this month, aren’t they? Maybe they are looking towards Filippo for just that!
