On this day in 2012: Roberto Mancini agrees new five-year contract with Man City

Roberto Mancini agreed a new five-year contract with Manchester City on this day in 2012.

Mancini might have been celebrating back in July, 10 years ago – but just 10 months later the City dream had soured and he wound up being sacked.

The Italian manager took charge at City in 2009 and helped accelerate the club’s revolution under owner Sheikh Mansour.

Mancini was rewarded with a long-term new deal after steering City to their first top-flight title in 68 years, when the Manchester side won the 2011-12 Premier League.
