Roberto Mancini slammed from MOTHER
Roberto Mancini’s own MOTHER slammed her son’s team selection last night as Italy humiliated themselves from the World Cup play-off.
Marianna Puolo, Mancini’s mother, also put the blame on Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, blaming him in part for the Azzurri’s failure to qualify for this winter’s World Cup.
Puolo spoke to Radiouno after the game – and claimed her son’s team needed Super Mario.
She said: “Yesterday could have gone better but this is football, sometimes things go right and sometimes things go wrong.
“We had the game in our hands but the attack wasn’t great.
“I would have called up Balotelli because he has incredible physical strength and nobody can stop him in front of goal.”
Jorginho, 30, missed three penalties in the group stage – and Puolo certainly hasn’t forgotten that.
She said: “Unfortunately, mistakes like Jorginho’s cost us something.”
