David Platt out at Man City

As Manchester City's players and staff prepared to board the team bus on Tuesday, there was one notable absentee.

One day after manager Roberto Mancini was sacked, Manchester City assistant manager David Platt left his role at the club, the team announced Tuesday on its website.

"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," a statement on the team site said.

"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."

Mancini paid the price for a poor season which saw the club beaten by Wigan in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley after surrendering the Barclays Premier League title to arch-rivals Manchester United.

Platt was part of Mancini's backroom staff at the club, winning the FA Cup and then last season pipping United to the Premier League title on the final day.
