As Manchester City supporters digested the news of the managerial changes that lie ahead for their club, one of their former bosses was giving a master class in the art of chipping a goalkeeper.

These days, Roberto Mancini is back in his second spell as manager of Inter Milan, having left the Etihad Stadium in 2013.

After a disappointing 3-0 defeat in the Milan derby, Mancini was seen taking an active part in the club’s training session on Tuesday.

As the ball breaks for the 51-year-old, he instinctively chips the ball over the stranded goalkeeper’s head.
