Mancini doesn’t take Man City’s title win lightly

Roberto Mancini acknowledges that Manchester City is considered the favorite in the Champions League final against Inter, but he emphasizes that their victory is not guaranteed.

After attending an event in Rome on Thursday, Mancini briefly spoke to the reporter, sharing his thoughts.

This season, Serie A clubs have a presence in each of the European Finals: Inter in the Champions League, Roma in the Europa League, and Fiorentina in the Conference League.

“Italian clubs can aim for three victories. Of course, it’s not easy, but it’s possible. Serie A clubs who have reached the Final have 12-13 Italians, which is important,” said Mancini, as quoted by Gazzetta.

“Many think Manchester City’s win is obvious. They are favourites, but it’s still all open, like Roma-Sevilla and Fiorentina-West Ham.”

On Thursday, Roma manager Mourinho addressed the media ahead of the Europa League Final against Sevilla, which is set to take place in six days. The Special One conceded that Paulo Dybala is unlikely to be in the starting lineup and might only be available for 15-20 minutes during the match in Budapest.

Italy’s national team is scheduled to face Spain in the semi-finals of the Nations League on June 15. This match will occur just five days after the Champions League Final between Inter and Manchester City, eight days after Fiorentina’s clash with West Ham in the Conference League, and 11 days before the conclusion of the Serie A season.

“I hoped the dates would be a little different, so we’d have more days to prepare for the National team’s games,” admitted Mancini.

“We have big games ahead and could have received more help from everyone, but dates remain the biggest problem.”
