City Fans Purchase 'Grazie Mancini' Ad in Italian Paper

MOST COMMENTED

More than 700 Manchester City fans purchased an advertisement in Tuesday’s Gazzetta Dello Sport thanking Roberto Mancini for his three years as the club’s head coach. The ad, which cost more than $10,500 according BBC, was purchased by the “Grazie Mancini” fund, which was started by University of Nottingham student Adam Keyworth, after the Italian coach had placed his own full-page ad in the Manchester Evening News thanking the club’s fans for “3 unforgettable years” on May 18th.

Keyworth, 21, told BBC Sport last week: "We raised [more than $7,500] in the first two days and the money has just continued to pour in. We didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Mancini as the sacking was quite messy so we're hoping, now we have the money, to put the ad in this weekend.”

Keyworth thanked everyone who donated on his Twitter account and added that the leftover money would be given to a local Manchester children’s charity.

Elsewhere, departing Stoke City manager Tony Pulis also published a letter to fans in local newspaper The Sentinel.
