Mancini sacked by Manchester City

Roberto Mancini sacked by Manchester City as Pellegrini waits in wings
• Italian manager leaves after weeks of speculation
• Manuel Pellegrini, the Málaga coach, set to take over

Roberto Mancini was finally sacked on Monday night as Manchester City manager, a year to the day after he led the club to a first championship in 44 years. The owners said the Italian's failure to meet any of his targets this season, with the exception of qualifying for the Champions League, had led to his dismissal.

The dramatic Sergio Agüero strike that won the title last May secured Mancini a lucrative five-year contract worth around £35m and a mandate to build City into an ongoing force. But 12 months on Mancini is unemployed, with the Abu Dhabi-led executive's decision to remove him coming after they allowed him to limp on when news broke on the eve of Saturday's FA Cup final with Wigan Athletic that they were in advanced discussions with Málaga's Manuel Pellegrini, who is almost certain to replace him.
