Former Liverpool and Man City star resigns as Stockport boss

Dietmar Hamann has resigned as manager of Blue Square Premier outfit Stockport. The former Liverpool and Manchester City midfielder Hamann, capped 59 times by Germany during his playing career, undertook his first management assignment at Edgeley Park this summer following County's relegation from the Football League.

His appointment coincided with the promise of new investment in the club from Liverpool-based businessman Tony Evans, which in the end failed to happen.

In a statement on Stockport's official website, Hamann said on Monday: "Following a meeting this morning between (chairman) Lord Snape and myself, I have tendered my resignation as manager of Stockport County.

"Having been introduced to the club by Tony Evans, I presumed that the takeover by him and his consortium would have taken place.

"Various promises were made to me at the time of my appointment which subsequently did not take place. I feel therefore unable to continue in the post."
