Mancini determined to come good at Inter Milan

Amantino Mancini is determined to prove himself at Inter Milan.

"I want to be the Mancini that people saw at Roma," he told the Corriere dello Sport. "To start with, I have the No 30 shirt like I had in the capital and that brings me luck.

"I had a good pre-season and I'll look to be ready when called upon. I hope to have a totally different season from the last one."

Mancini was so disappointing in 2008-09 following his eagerly anticipated switch from the Olimpico that he was on the verge of leaving the Nerazzurri last month.

"Roma approached my agent and I did think about a return to the capital," he admitted. "Then, on August 31, everything was done with Genoa but then (Jose) Mourinho changed my mind."
