Manchester City have offloaded midfielder Filippo Mancini.

Mancini is the son of sacked City manager Roberto Mancini.

Bizarrely, or not so as the case may be, it's not the first time the father and son duo have been given their marching orders by the same club - When Mancini Sr. was relieved of his duties at Inter Milan back in May 2008, Mancini Jr. soon followed him out of the San Siro exit door just two months later.
