Mancini enjoys biggest payout in British football history at Man City

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.
