From the horses mouth, the horse being a club statement from Manchester City.
“It is with regret that Manchester City Football Club announces that Roberto Mancini has been relieved of his duties as Manchester City Manager. 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.”
Expected stuff, especially after speculation from the weekend. Richard will have more on this shortly.
