Roberto Mancini Set To Take Mark Hughes' Job At Manchester City - ReportsThe former Inter coach has agreed a deal with the Citizens...Dec 19, 2009 3:16:59 PMMark Hughes is tipped for the chop at Manchester City, regardless of his side's result against Sunderland this weekend, and widespread reports in the Italian media suggest that Roberto Mancini has agreed a deal to succeed him.Tuttosport, Il Corriere dello Sport and La Repubblica all believe that Mancini will officially take over at Eastlands on Sunday.The former newspaper claims that his contract will run until the end of the season, and it will be automatically extended should he guide the club to fourth place, and a spot in next season's Champions League.La Repubblica, on the other hand, points towards a three-and-a-half year deal, worth an annual €3.5 million.The English club have spent heavily since being taken over by Sheikh Mansour, but a lack of progress this season looks to have cost Hughes his job with the side.Guus Hiddink and Jurgen Klinsmann have also been connected with taking the soon-to-be-vacant manager's post, but Mancini's successes in Italy look to have tipped the scales in his favour.Should he take charge imminently, Tuttosport believes that he will make Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero his number one target for the transfer window.

MARK HUGHES told Manchester City's shell-shocked stars to "finish the job" during a final dressing room speech last night.Some of City's players were unaware that the manager would be officially sacked by the club after the game.In an emotive and powerful speech following the 4-3 victory over Sunderland, he told them they were "a top-four team in the making".Six players - including Craig Bellamy and Gareth Barry - immediately left the dressing room to demand an explanation from chief executive Garry Cook.By then it was too late, with City refusing to reverse a decision that has been bubbling since the 1-1 draw with Hull last month.City released a statement last night confirming that Hughes' final game in charge had been against the Black Cats.Now Hughes will demand that the final 18 months on his managerial contract is paid up in full.He was earning around £3million per season with huge bonuses built in for success.His coaching staff, including assistant manager Eddie Niedzwiecki, coach Mark Bowen and reserve team boss Glyn Hodges will also demand severance pay.After weeks of uncertainty at the club, Hughes was made aware yesterday morning that Roberto Mancini had agreed to replace him as City's manager.He immediately took legal advice from the League Managers' Association, who told him to carry on as normal.He had considered refusing to take charge of the team for the match, but LMA lawyers insisted that he must carry out his managerial duties according to the terms of his contract.ThreatThe City chief had arrived at Eastlands yesterday meaning business - and not just on the field. He believes he has been stabbed in the back by Cook, football administrator Brian Marwood and technical development manager Brian Kidd.Cook emphatically told Hughes that his job was NOT under threat the day after they drew 1-1 with Hull last month.In fact, the wheels were already in motion to appoint a new manager and that man is Mancini.Hughes is disgusted by his treatment, taking charge of the team for the final time yesterday when he knew he was about to be sacked.He confronted Cook and Marwood before the game, accusing the pair of plotting his removal ever since their arrival at the club. Hughes has certainly been undermined in recent weeks, only discovering that the club were actively seeking a replacement when his assistant Niedzwiecki informed him.He was finished after that - a sitting duck until City could thrash out personal terms with Mancini.It was another remarkable day in the life of this crazy club, with boardroom members squirming throughout yesterday's match.Hughes's wife, Jill, cut a dignified figure in the directors' box, even though it was clear that she knew her husband was about to be sacked.Despite her gracious manner, it was clear there was no love lost between her and Kidd when he took his seat for the second half.The pair sit in the same row and she made it perfectly clear that she was not impressed by the rumours that he was about to be appointed assistant to Mancini.It is another remarkable rise by Kidd, just three months after Hughes sanctioned the appointment of his former United pal.Now Mancini will pick up the reins, charged with finishing in the top four.He finds them in sixth place in the Premier League table and in the semi-final of the Carling Cup.They face Manchester United over two legs next month, just 180 minutes from their first Wembley final since the Simod Cup Final in 1986.Hughes finally drove away from the stadium late last night with a face like thunder.Despite Sunderland's latest defeat, Bruce went on the front foot to defend his former playing pal.He said: "It's a ridiculous decision, but nothing surprises me in football any more."It seems everyone knew he was getting sacked and if that's true, then it's worrying. Nothing surprises me."Managers go through such a long process to get their coaching badges and then they get so little time to get it right."The average is 18 months in the Championship and it's only a bit higher in the Premier League because Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have been around for so long."It's unbelievable."It wasn't for City's supporters, with most of the 40,000 inside the stadium well aware that Hughes would be sacked after the game.The City chief simply went through the motions in the technical area, barely able to motivate himself. He shook the hands of each player as they walked off the field and then waved to the few supporters who stayed to send him off.
OUTRAGED Manchester City stars confronted chief executive Gary Cook over the sacking of Mark Hughes and the £10million appointment of Roberto Mancini.Craig Bellamy and Shay Given led a six-man delegation after axed Hughes made an emotional dressing speech telling them he was being replaced by the former Inter Milan boss.The Italian has been handed a three- and-a-half year deal on £3m a year after a series of meetings with Cook and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarek following the draw with Hull on November 28.The players were disgusted at the treatment of Hughes after it emerged his fate was sealed following the Carling Cup victory over Arsenal on December 2.A dressing room source said: "Mark thanked all the lads at the end of the game and told them this would be his last game because Mancini was taking over. There is a huge amount of loyalty towards Mark, the players respect him as a manager and as a person and they can't believe he's being treated as shabbily as this."This has been done without any class whatsoever. The players were getting messages on their mobiles telling them what was going on and they decided they had to do something."They know who is behind this - Gary Cook and Brian Marwood. Six of them decided they had to say and do something so they went looking for them after the game."Perhaps it was a futile gesture but they had to do something because they were so furious."Mancini's deal includes a £1million bonus if City finish in the top four this season. And he'll pick up another £1m for every trophy he wins over the course of his contract.It emerged last night that Brian Kidd will be Mancini's assistant after many of the City backroom staff followed Hughes out of Eastlands.Kidd has been part of the academy set-up since leaving Portsmouth earlier this season. He was also Sir Alex Ferguson's right hand man at Manchester United before falling out with the Old Trafford boss.

Just the man they need to draw in big names. Now Liverpool and Villa should be worried about a top 4 finish, next season. Hughes was never staying in charge. It's just f*ckery how it happened.Villa = 4th this year.
