Mancini was attending the premiere of a documentary covering that season.
“I hope that this film can be useful to the youngsters of today, because it goes beyond the victory. Many teams have won and will continue to win, but this is a story of friendship, we managed to do it precisely because we are still friends after 30 years," he said.
“We had a great relationship with President Mantovani, we could have left Sampdoria for other teams but we had an indescribable love for that shirt and that team. We achieved goals that are surely impossible to achieve today.
“The final embrace with Vialli doesn't just represent the European Championship, but the whole relationship that has always existed between us Sampdorians, it was something special, beyond the victory which was very important."
