Roberto Mancini `fine` after being swept off his feet

Milan: Inter coach Roberto Mancini joked he was back to full health after a wayward pass during his side`s win over Genoa on Sunday knocked the Italian clean off his feet.

Mancini was standing on the sidelines when Inter defender Marco Andreolli hit the ball inadvertently at his coach`s head, sweeping Mancini off his feet as he tried to protect himself with his arm.

The 50-year-old Mancini, who led Inter to seven trophies including three consecutive league titles during his previous spell with the club in 2004-2008, dusted himself down and went on to oversee his second victory at the helm since his return last November.

Asked about his attempted `save`, the Italian replied: "I didn`t parry the ball, it really hit me in the face ! It wasn`t very pleasant, but I`m more or less fine."

Inter moved up to ninth spot, six points behind Lazio in the third and last Champions League qualifying spot.
