Dad dictated Man City deal for Mancini Jr

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has confirmed the arrival of Inter Milan youngster Filippo Mancini.

The signing of the 17-year-old was at the behest of the forward's father, Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini.

Eriksson admitted: "I haven't seen him play but Roberto wanted him to come here into our academy.

"How good he is, I don't know but he has played for Inter, so I think he will be good.

"If he is only half as good as his father it will be enough."
