Manchester City hired Manuel Pellegrini as manager Friday, entrusting a man nicknamed "The Engineer" with constructing a team to reclaim the Premier League title and become a force in the Champions League.
A day after New York City FC was born, Claudio Reyna became the team's first employee.
Hoping their baseball success will translate to titles in another sport, the Yankees are combining with English power Manchester City to own a Major League Soccer expansion team in New York that will start play in 2015.
"Manuel is a very experienced coach with a recognized ability to get the most out of his players and build cohesive teams," Soriano said. "He shares the club's approach to football and our ambition to achieve on-field success, coordinating with the wider football support teams to ensure natural progression from the academy to senior level."
"We need a community that supports us. We need a family that's going to embrace us," Manchester City Chief Executive Officer Ferran Soriano said. "So we're going to continue this discussion. But the first thing we want to do is to listen, listen to the community, listen to everybody."
