LONDON (AP) -Manchester City has fired manager Roberto Mancini after conceding the Premier League title to rival Man United and finishing the season without a trophy.

The club announced the decision Monday on its website.

The Italian is departing after less than four years in charge, having ended the club's 35-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup in 2011 and then leading the team to its first league title in 44 years the following season.

City has two games remaining this league campaign, the first of which is at Reading on Tuesday.
