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.
The Italian is departing after less than four years in charge. He ended the club's 35-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup in 2011 and in 2012 led the team to its first league title in 44 years.
Manchester City fired manager Roberto Mancini on Monday, exactly one year after he delivered the club's first English league title in 44 years.
"Manuel is a hugely experienced and successful manager with a proven track record," City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said.
He has done as he promised and delivered silverware and success, breaking the club's 35-year trophy drought and securing the title in 2012.
