Manchester City sacked Roberto Mancini after three and a half years at the Etihad. The Italian failed to win any silverware during the 2012/13 season and also failed to make an impact in the Champions League for the second year running. Mancini will definitely not be short of offers for an immediate return to the game. We will keep you of all the goings on right here at the Sack Race.
Mancini had a successful playing career and won a host of trophies at Sampdoria and Lazio, as well as winning 36 caps for Italy.
The Italian managed Fiorentina briefly from 2001/02, winning the Coppa Italia, before joining Lazio in 2002. Restricted by the club's financial problems Mancini had to sell his best players but still managed to win the Coppa Italia during his two years with the club.
In the summer of 2004 Mancini left Lazio for Inter Milan, where he won three successive Italian League titles, two Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italianas, before being sacked in May 2008.
In 2009 he replaced Mark Hughes at Man City and last season guided the club to their first FA Cup since 1969. Last season Mancini led City to their first top flight title since 1968.
