Manchester City are expected to dismiss manager Roberto Mancini later this week, according to reports in the British media yesterday.

Stories emerging in the Spanish press this week claimed that City are poised to replace the Italian with Malaga’s Chilean coach Manuel Pellegrini, and the English Premier League club have so far failed to provide any clarification over Mancini’s position.

As well as their FA Cup final defeat, City failed to keep pace with United in the defence of their Premier League title and were knocked out of the Champions League in the group phase.

Reports appearing on the websites of several British newspapers on Sunday claimed that Mancini could even be sacked prior to his side's next league game at Reading on Tuesday.
