Talented Italian leaves Galatasaray.

Galatasaray have parted company with former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, reports Goal.

The 49-year-old, who was dismissed by the Citizens in May 2013, leaves the Turkish giants after just nine months in charge.

Galatasaray won the Turkish Cup and reached the last 16 of the Champions League, but many of their fans were furious at finishing second to fierce rivals Fenerbahce in the Super Lig.

Mancini took charge of 46 Galatasaray games, masterminding 25 wins and 12 draws, as well as overseeing nine defeats.

The Galatasaray job was his fifth managerial appointment. He began his coaching career with Fiorentina, where he had to work with heavily restricted finances.

Mancini won the Coppa Italia, but stepped down from Fiorentina after 10 months in charge.

He then moved to Lazio, where he again won the Coppa Italia, before enjoying a four-year stint as Inter Milan boss.

While in charge of Inter, Mancini lifted three Serie A titles, two Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italianas.

Mancini moved to England to manage City in 2009. After ending the club’s 35-year wait for a major trophy by delivering the FA Cup in 2011, he led to team to Premier League glory 12 months later.

However, after failing to retain the league title, he was disposed of.
