In the summer of 2015, Erick Thohir backed Mancini to the hilt. He was given almost all the players that were available and desired by him. The biggest of them was Geoffrey Kondogbia.A €35 million from AS Monaco, he was swept from under the nose of their city rivals Ac Milan. A player who was courted by several clubs and linked with numerous destinations ended up at Inter. While the prospect of resurrecting a fallen giant be accepted as tempting, it is no secret that the huge financial package put together by the Inter decision makers is likely to have swayed the player’s decision. Stevan jovetic was lured from Manchester City at Mancini’s behest. And Miranda’s signature was secured from Atletico Madrid to give the 2010 treble winners defensive solidity and experience. When the goals dried up in january, striker Eder was brought from Sampdoria to solve their goalscoring crisis.

But they find themselves at number four behind Juventus,Napoli and AS Roma. Roma who themselves were engulfed in a managerial crisis with Rudi Garcia for a significant period in the last season apart from the fallout that followed between Garcia’s successor Luciano Spalletti and Captain Francesco Totti.It was not that the Nerrazzuri were strugging like their city rivals AC Milan.They had been at the number one spot till November. Juventus were woeful in their domestic challenge while Napoli were gaining steam. What unfolded in the coming months is something that the supporters wouldn’t have envisaged. Instead of celebrating a parade across the city hoisting the Scudetto, preparing for Champions League and possibly welcoming the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, the Inter fans would have to see their team go against the likes of Zorya Luhansk, Feyenoord and Standard Liege.
The insistence if Mancini to invest the mammoth sums equivalent to the sums of last season arouses a bit of skepticism. With the taking over of the chinese group,Inter would be looking to push through for bigger and better things.And maybe Mancini is not the right man to do so. He may have succeeded at Manchester City but the sums involved to achieve the success is something that one suspects Inter don’t have. The new investors would want to have a better return on investment. Considering they already have secured the services of Ever Banega from Sevilla on a free transfer, they would be looking to do some astute business deals rather than making a splash in the market like last season.And if Mancini doesn’t feel that he is getting the requisite confidence to the job, he may do well to walk away. Maybe the second coming is not worth the trouble for both Inter and Mancini.
