As a manager, "Mancio" won three Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles, and two Supercoppa Italiana titles with Inter Milan.

Individually, Mancini has won Guerin d'Oro twice, Serie A Footballer of the Year and Panchina d'Oro. In 2015 he was inducted into the Italian Football Hall of Fame and four years later he won the Enzo Bearzot Award and the Italian Sportsman of the Year.
