Roma defender Gianluca Mancini has revealed World Cup winner and former Inter hero Marco Materazzi has been his idol since an early age.
The Giallorossi defender has revealed the story behind his first tattoo and revealed that it all started with his admiration for the Nerazzurri defender.
“I tattooed the number 23 because of Marco Materazzi,” Mancini told Cronache di Spogliatoio. “Finally, I put it on my shirt. For Marco it was born with the myth of Michael Jordan, for me it starts with him.”
