Ex-Inter Milan midfielder Felipe Melo: Mancini a great friend

Former Inter Milan midfielder Felipe Melo has spoken of his affection for Italy coach Roberto Mancini.

Melo played for Mancio at Inter and Galatasaray.

He said, “In that season we did not have the type of team capable of winning the title and after a few months we started to drop off. Despite this, I am proud of what I did. In Italy I had many good experiences.

“Mancini is a great friend and he is one of the greatest managers I have ever met. We won together at Galatasaray and he then took me to Inter which was a team I dream of playing for as a child."
