Manuel Pellegrini favourite to replace Roberto Mancini at Man City

Roberto Mancini's future at Manchester City remains in serious doubt following their FA Cup Final defeat to Wigan on Saturday. Rumours are rife that the 2011/12 Premier League champions are set to sack the Italian and replace him with Malaga's Manuel Pellegrini, although the club are yet to confirm the news.
Roberto Mancini

Pellegrini is as short as 1/12 with Sky Bet in the Next Man City Manager Odds. His reputation in the game is sky high at the moment due to his success with Malaga in the past couple of seasons. In 2011/12 the 59-year-old led them through to the Champions League for the first time in their history, and in their debut season in Europe's elite competition they impressively reached the quarter-finals.

City’s last-gasp defeat to Wigan means they will finish the season without any form of silverware, which is simply unacceptable for a club that have splashed out millions in the transfer market in recent years. They have previously won the Premier League and FA Cup under Mancini but if speculation is to be believed then he could be on his way out before City’s penultimate game at Reading on Tuesday.

Manneul Pellegrini

Other contenders to succeed the Italian include Jose Mourinho (8/1) who is widely expected to leave Real Madrid this summer, although Chelsea is his most likely destination. Liverpool's Brendan Rodgers can currently be backed at 20/1, while the soon to be out-of-work Rafa Benitez is priced at 25/1.
