Roberto Mancini has been named as the new manager of Turkish champions Galatasaray on a three-year contract.
The Italian replaces Fatih Terim, who was sacked last week after failing to agree a new contract.
City fired Mancini in May, exactly a year after he led them to their first Premier League title.
Galatasaray have made a disappointing start to the Turkish league season, picking up only one win from their first five games. They are in a Champions League group with Real Madrid, who beat them 6-1 in their opening game, Juventus and FC Copenhagen.
Mancini won three successive Italian league titles and two Italian Cups with Inter Milan, before winning the FA Cup and Premier League with City.
The Italian’s first match in charge will be Wednesday’s Champions League clash at Juventus
