Mancini sacked by Man City
Looks like there will be two new managers at each of the Manchester clubs next season as Roberto Mancini has been fired by Manchester City. Looking back at the year Manchester City has had this move isn’t all that shocking; the club under achieved greatly failing to hold the Premier League title, failing to win the FA Cup (ousted by Wigan in the final), and displayed a dismal performance in the Champions League. Those three ingredients mixed together with inconsistent performances will have any manager of a high profile team fired.
Brian Kidd will take over as interim manager until the team finds a full time replacement. Kidd’s duties will include the final two games of the season and Manchester City’s American tour during the summer.
This is what the team’s website had to say,
Despite everyone’s best efforts, the Club has failed to achieve any of its stated targets this year, with the exception of qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League. This, combined with an identified need to develop a holistic approach to all aspects of football at the Club, has meant that the decision has been taken to find a new manager for the 2013/14 season and beyond.
