One of the most talented players of his age, Mancini debuted in Italian Serie A for Bologna on September 12, 1981. The following year he was bought by Sampdoria, for which he played until 1997. Later he played for Lazio (1997–2000) and Leicester City (2001).

With Sampdoria, he formed a dynamic strike partnership with Gianluca Vialli, and led the club to its only scudetto in 1991, four Coppa Italy (1985, 1988, 1989 and 1994) and a Cup Winners' Cup in 1990. He also lost the final of the 1991–1992 European Cup against Barcelona. With Lazio he won his second scudetto (2000) and Cup Winners' Cup titles (1999) as well as two more Coppa Italias (1998 and 2000).

07/2002 - 06/2004 ==> Lazio Roma, Italy
07/2004 - 05/2008 ==> Internazionale Milano, Italy

After retiring as a player, Mancini coached Fiorentina (2001) and Lazio (2002–04) before moving to Inter in 2004. He won the Coppa Italia with both Fiorentina (2001) and Lazio (2004). During his tenure with Fiorentina, Mancini was occasionally willing to come out and play for the team due to the club having financial problems with its players. With Inter, he won two Coppa Italia (2005 and 2006), two Supercoppa Italiana (2005 and 2006) and three Scudetti (2005–06, 2006–07 and 2007-08), becoming the most successful Inter coach of the last 30 years. However, Mancini failed to replicate his domestic successes with Inter at the European level, as he never managed to win the UEFA Champions League during his time as nerazzurri boss.

On March 11, 2008, Mancini announced his intention to stand down at the end of the 2007-8 season after his side were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after a 3-0 aggregate loss to Liverpool in the round of 16. Mancini rescinded this decision on March 12 after meeting with Inter president Massimo Moratti. On May 29, 2008, Inter officially announced to have sacked Mancini, following an encounter with club chairman Massimo Moratti, motivating the decision with his comments made immediately after the Liverpool defeat. He was replaced by Jose Mourinho.

Despite his success at club level, Mancini never became a regular for Italy. He only won 36 caps and scored four goals for his country (including a goal against West Germany at Euro 88). He was also a non playing member of the Italian squad at 1990 World Cup, being kept out of the side by the likes of Andrea Carnevale and Roberto Baggio. At U-21 level, Mancini finished runner-up in UEFA U-21 Championship 1986, and reached the semi-finals in UEFA U-21 Championship 1984. His international career came to an end after a dispute with national team coach Arrigo Sacchi when Mancini found he would not be guaranteed a first team place at USA 94.
