Platt quits Man City

Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini has remained the favourite for the Manchester City hotseat despite denying any contact with the club
As Manchester City's players and staff prepared to board the team bus on Tuesday, there was one notable absentee.

Manchester City assistant boss David Platt has resigned following the club's decision to sack manager Roberto Mancini.

Mancini was shown the door by City late on Monday - a year to the day since the club won the Premier League title.

Now Platt, Mancini's right-hand man who often stood in for him at press conferences, has decided to quit.

A statement released on the club's official website read: "With regret, Manchester City announce that David Platt has this afternoon left his role as assistant manager at the club.

"David was offered the opportunity to continue his work with us, but has declined the invitation. He has decided to leave his role with his close friend Roberto Mancini.

"David has made a significant contribution to the club's success since joining in 2010, and we wish him well with his career, wherever that now takes him."

City are expected to appoint Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini as Mancini's replacement.

Pellegrini, who has a €4 million release clause, is likely to leave cash-strapped Malaga in the summer after guiding them to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
