Roberto Mancini set to be replaced by Manuel Pellegrini as Manchester City manager

Posted by - May 11, 2013 - Manchester City

Roberto Mancini might be leading his Manchester City side out at Wembley for the second time in three years, but it appears that his days at Eastlands may be running out.

Reports have screamed around social media that the Italian is to be replaced by Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season.

This one really seems to be splitting opinion. On the one hand you could say that Mancini has won three trophies in three years, and that Alex Ferguson’s retirement makes it the ideal time to instigate stability when their greatest rivals might be losing theirs.

On the other hand, Mancini has failed in his bid to regain the Premier League title, didn’t win a single match in the Champions League and the FA Cup may be high on his agenda, but the same cannot be said of Sheikh Mansour.

So thoughts on this one?
