Manchester City Sack Hughes and Roberto Mancini Comes In

Mark Hughes says, "I was given no warning" but nonetheless he is now without a job, after being sacked by the head boss, Khaldoon Al Mubarak. Manchester City were hoping for a better start to their season, and even though they won against Sunderland with a fantastic 4-3 scoreline, head boss says,
"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."
Now that Hughes is out, Man City found a manager with a much better international reputation, Roberto Mancini, who by the way will be paid the large sum of 3 million pounds a year until 2013. But the catch in this wonder contract is that if after 6 months Man City isn't seeing Champions League in the near future, then the contract can be terminated. To take on this mission, Mancini has brought with him assistant manager Brian Kidd, formerly of Manchester United.
