Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini enjoyed the biggest payout in British football history after his sacking at Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror says the pay-off was in excess of £10m.

The cost of his dismissal was absorbed into the massive salary figure in the Etihad accounts for the year ending May 2013. City paid more than £233m in wages in that period – an annual increase of over £30m – but that included the sum given to Mancini and the staff who left with him last summer.

Now managing Galatasaray, Mancini was only one season into a five-year contract, worth a massive £37m.
