Mancini accepts Mihajlovic bet

Roberto Mancini and Sinisa Mihajlovic have added further spice to the derby between Internazionale and AC Milan by accepting a charity bet.

The two managers have agreed to make a charitable donation to the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe after Mancini accepted the challenge from his counterpart.

Mihajlovic made the proposal in an open letter to La Gazzetta dello Sport, saying "ahead of every derby, we will choose an association in need or group in difficulty that needs help and make a donation, and whoever wins the derby… will pay."

"After a victory, the level of generosity will be even greater than usual. And should we draw, we won't split it, but we will double the amount."

In the same publication on Friday, Mancini said: "I accept, and it will be me who pays!"

The two sides will line up for the historic local derby at the San Siro on Sunday.
