Sven leaves City

Sven-Goran Eriksson and Manchester City Football Club have
parted company by mutual consent, the Club announces today.
Chief Executive,
Alistair Mackintosh said, "The Board of Directors and all at Manchester City
would like to thank Sven for his efforts and contributions throughout the season
and we wish him all the best for the future. Sven remains a friend of the Club."
Sven Goran Eriksson added, "I have enjoyed my time at Manchester City very
much indeed and in particular, I would like to thank the fans, players and staff
for their amazing support over the season. I wish the Club, and everyone
associated with it, much success in the coming years."
The Club will make no
further announcement in relation to the managerial position until after a
successor is appointed.

I cannot believe this move would have been made without a replacement being lined up to be announced within the next week, which if true, would surely rule out Scolari given his Euro 2008 commitments.

There were reports in the Sunday papers that Zico’s recent fall out with Fenerbahce has put him in the frame, but smart money appears to be on Mark Hughes, with The Telegraph suggesting an approach has already been made to Blackburn to speak with him.

Expect plenty of speculation one way or the other until an official announcement is made.

UPDATE: The Guardian is reporting that Hughes has been granted permission to speak with us.
