Roberto Mancini's Inter Milan were left shell shocked by Tottenham Hotspur on Friday when Mauricio Pochettino's side demolished them 6-1.

It was the perfect pre-season game for the North London side, with teenager Shayon Harrison capping the scoring on his professional debut.

To get one over on old foe Roberto Mancini in such a manner should also have brought satisfaction to the Tottenham hierachy.

The Italian presided over a handful of key defeats inflicted upon Tottenham, during his time as manager of Manchester City.

Among them was a 5-1 win at White Hart Lane back in 2011, with Edin Dzeko blasting four goals. He followed a result up later that season with a 3-2 win over Harry Redknapp's side.

The results were costly with Spurs missing out on the Champions League by a single point that season.

A 1-0 win for City at the end of 2010/11 due to a Crouch own goal also ended Spurs' chances of qualification in that campaign.

Now it seems Tottenham's heavy win over Inter has had a terminal impact on Mancini's time at Inter Milan.

 

After joining the Italian giants in 2014 after a brief spell with Galatasaray, the 2011/12 Premier League winner hoped to restore them to their former glory.

Inter have not progressed under his management and are still a shadow of the side which won the 2010 Champions League.

Tottenham appear to have played a prominent role in his impending exit with their heavy win, and and supporter who had to watch a Mancini managed Manchester City destroy them at White Hart Lane in 2011 may have a little smile at their belated, low key revenge.
