Mark Hughes Sacked - Mancini In For Manchester

Manchester City FC can confirm that it has today terminated the contract of Mark Hughes.

In giving reason for the termination Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said:

Prior to the current season beginning, with significant investment in players and infrastructure in place, the consensus between the Board and coaching staff was that appropriate agreed targets should be set for the 2009/2010 season.

The targets were agreed as a result of the player acquisition strategy of the club being radically accelerated in the summer as a result of very favourable conditions for any buying club. It was also based on the fact that the infrastructure of the club had been overhauled completely at great cost in order to create the best possible environment for the team.

A return of two wins in 11 Premier League games is clearly not in line with the targets that were agreed and set. Sheikh Mansour and the Board felt that there was no evidence that the situation would fundamentally change. This is a particularly difficult announcement given the personal investment over the past 15 months on all sides and we would like to put on record our respect for and thanks to Mark Hughes and we wish him the best in his future career.

Manchester City Football Club can confirm the appointment, with immediate effect on a permanent contract, of Roberto Mancini and are also pleased to announce that Brian Kidd will join Roberto as assistant manager.

Commenting on the appointment, Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: Roberto is a hugely experienced manager with a proven track record of winning trophies and championships. His experience and track record speak for themselves. What is absolutely clear is that Roberto believes in Manchester Citys potential to achieve at the highest level and importantly in his own ability to make this happen. My hope is that our incredible fans will join us in welcoming Roberto to the football club.

Mark Bowen, Eddie Niedzwiecki, Kevin Hitchcock and Glyn Hodges have also left the Club and further appointments will be announced in due course.

Headline guys : Manchester City set to sack Mark Hughes and bring in Roberto Mancini

terrible considering man city have only lost two games Man U have lost more this season so far
#6
probably not the best idea in the world , mark hughes' team has underachieved thats for sure but is Mancini the man for the job ?


Rumour has it he was going to be sacked after the Hull draw but begged for another chance.

Of course, the statement could be them giving the dreaded vote of confidence, but I doubt it.
#7
na can't see it they annouced there would be a meeting during the game today shows you how much they care if the team are winning or losing

According to Sky Sports, Kolo Toure was told this afternoon that Hughes was going, and he had to go and tell the team !. Oh deary me !
#10
Macnini will sign a 3 and half year contract when the layers sort the paper work out
[mod]#11
A lot of ageing average Italians will be boosting the retirement fund come January. Robinho will be off to Barca and if they adopt Mancini's style it will be dull football.
#12
suprised he lasted so long to be honest would never have trusted him to buy properly with that kitty
#13
Dull football wins titles, Im not sure it was the best time to replace Hughes but in my opinion he was never the man for the job anyway, the players dont respect him, he cant motivate them and he is tactically inept, as well as being perhaps the dullest person in football. Mancini was inters most succesful manager for 30 years so he's not exactly an amateur.

Better to get rid sooner rather than later I suppose. If I was the sheikh I wouldnt have faniced giving Hughes another transfer window to pay WAY over the odds for the likes of Lescott.

It s a tricky one because you can argue it either way, weve had the least defeats in the league but then again weve drawn 8, 6 of which we should have arguably won. The defence is a shambles and a couple of the big names clearly dont respect him and dont give a **** about the club.

you need stability tho surely.........i thought they would of stuck with him tbh at least til the end of the season

clearly the arabs know zilcho apart from how to spend money

i really do feel this may backfire on them, and half of me is hoping it does
#26
Back before the season started,and I may remember this incorrectly,but I am sure Hughes stated that there was no pressure to finish top 4 this season as the new owners understood this to be a long term goal.......yadda yadda blah,blah,blah.

Or have i got that wrong :?
banned#27
Seems like the Man City board have panicked.

Decided they weren't doing well enough and wanted to get someone in before the January transfer window (because not only do you need success, but it needs to be bought), so they've gone not for the best manager but the one who is available.

You only give them time if they are going in the right direction, I appreciate what he did turning the training etc around but I think he took them as far as he could, he was never going to be a premier league winner methinks, theres was only ever one tactic, attack attack attack, you spend £250 million and concede 3 goals time after time against **** teams, would you trust him with another pile of your money ?

lol, Inter had no rivals at the time (due to points deductions / relegations) and didn't really 'win' the first of their three titles - I don't think you need to be 'all that' to win a one-horse race :whistling:

He'll be gone from City at the end of the season if Hiddink / Mourinho become available :roll:

This sums it up perfectly:

What was his brief? Win league or qualify for Champions League and win a cup? If latter then the owners are pulling the trigger too early. If former, then the owners are obviously insane


Chelsea of the North :lol:

from wiki
Coaching career
Fiorentina

After retiring as a player, Mancini coached Fiorentina (2001). He managed to win the Coppa Italia on his first occasion as manager. 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.
Lazio

Mancini was appointed manager of Lazio in 2002 and was successful by winning the Coppa Italia in 2004 for the 2nd time in his managerial career, having previously Won the trophy in 2001 with Fiorentina.

In 2004, rumours circulated that Inter Milan approached him regarding the vacant managerial role and shortly after, he announced he would be joining the nerazzurri.
Inter

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. The first championship was handed to Inter following the Calciopoli scandal, that saw Juventus stripped of the title and relegated to Serie B.

On March 11, 2008, Mancini announced his intention to stand down at the end of the 2007-08 season after his side were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after a 3-0 aggregate loss to Liverpool in the Second Round. Mancini rescinded this decision on March 12 after meeting with Inter president Massimo Moratti. On May 29, 2008, Inter officially announced the sacking Mancini, following an encounter with club chairman Massimo Moratti, justifying the move by pointing to Mancini's negative comments made immediately after the Liverpool defeat.[4] He was replaced by José Mourinho.[5]

Oh dear, I was right:whistling:

Chelsea's great defense and efficiency was often mistaken for them being boring. They weren't.

Mancini is a stopgap at best.
