Roberto Mancini Sacked As Man City Boss – The news comes exactly a year after the Italian helped secure the club their first Premier League title.
A statement from the club read: This has been a difficult decision for the owner, Chairman and Board to make.
“And it is the outcome of a planned end of season review process that has been brought forward in light of recent speculation and out of respect for Roberto and his extensive contributions to the Football Club.”
Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “Roberto’s record speaks for itself and he has the respect and gratitude of Sheikh Mansour, myself and the Board for all of his hard work and commitment over the last three and a half years.”
Assistant Manager Brian Kidd will charge for the remaining two games of the season and the post-season tour to the US.
