Manchester City has hired Manuel Pellegrini as the club’s new manager to replace the fired Roberto Mancini.

The 59-year-old Chilean has been courted for months by City following impressive spells in Spain with Villarreal and Malaga. He also coached Real Madrid but was dismissed after one season despite guiding the team to its then-record points total in La Liga.
