Roberto Mancini knew he had a hard task to carry out at Inter Milan but he never knew he had to put his looks on the line.

The Italian manager picked up his first home win with the Nerazzurri today since his return to the San Siro but the highlight was undoubtedly the moment he got the ball kicked in his face.

It was at 67 minutes when Inter Milan captain Marco Andreolli kicked the ball out for a free kick and accidentally hit his own manager right in the kisser and made him fall in superb fashion.

The former Manchester City boss immediately got up, laughed it off and jokingly signalled to the fourth official for Andreolli’s punishing substitution.


Mancini saw his side beat Genoa 3-1 with goals by Rodrigo Palacio, Mauro Icardi and former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic who netted his first goal with the Italian club.
