Cult Heroes: Roberto Mancini
Roberto Mancini is the ultimate hero for any Sampdoria fan. Mancini joined Sampdoria in 1982, at the request of President Mantovani, who wanted him at all costs. Mancini repaid that trust, offering his talent and loyalty towards Sampdoria's colours throughout the years. In 424 matches, he scored a total of 132 goals, many of them in partnership with Gianluca Vialli, becoming the so-called 'Goal Twins'.
