Blue T-shirt, light shorts, sneakers: Roberto Mancini was portrayed like this in his native Jesi village of Ancona, as he lined up for shopping at a grocery and meat shop.
The coach of Italy, the champion of Europe, simple and more than normal, without the luxuries that many others enjoy on the shores of the world, including footballers.
Mancini has gone to his hometown for another fact: his parents are struggling with age-related health problems. Mother Marianna underwent knee surgery, suffered from some complications and is hospitalized.
His father Aldo told the weekly Dipiù that he had undergone heart surgery: “I have to be sure, I was born in 1935. Now I watch matches on TV. “Roberto was good as a player, but to see him on the national team bench is a whole other thing.”
