Inter boss Mancini to make refugee donation after derby win

Tom Victor

AC Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic and his Inter counterpart Roberto Mancini spiced things up before the Milan derby with a curious bet.

There was money on the line, but not as you might expect – both agreed that the winning manager would make a sizeable donation to a charity supporting refugees.

It was a classy gesture, and added an extra bit of tension to what has always been one of the most hard-fought rivalries in world football.

Inter took all three points at the San Siro thanks to this tasty Fredy Guarin strike, and, despite the best efforts of debutant Mario Balotelli, Mancini will be the one opening his wallet.

Mihajlovic will have a chance to get his own back in the next Milan derby, where the charitable donation will be on the line once again.

And if the game ends all-square, the donation will be doubled.
