Jackett to head Man City reserves
Kenny Jackett
Jackett led Swansea to League Two promotion two season's ago
Manchester City have appointed Kenny Jackett as their reserve team coach.

However, despite his title, the former Swansea boss will not be restricted purely to reserve affairs and will be part of the first-team set-up.

Jackett, 45, replaces Frankie Bunn who left to link up with new Coventry manager Iain Dowie in February.

The arrival completes City's coaching team, which has also seen Eric Steele come in as goalkeeping coach for Tim Flowers, who has also joined Coventry.

Jackett decided to step down as Swansea manager three weeks ago after nearly three years in charge.

We've done extremely good business getting Kenny in

Man City manager Stuart Pearce

The former Wales international said he felt he no longer had the full support of the club, players or supporters at the Liberty Stadium.

Man City manager Stuart Pearce said: "He is someone that I had hoped to bring in at some stage and had previously thought about working with.

"I've known Kenny for a good length of time. I've worked on courses with him, I've played schoolboy football with him and he's someone who I've always felt could do a good job. It was fortunate for me the timing of it.

"He's worked at Swansea for three years and did extremely well there with a promotion, a play-off and was in seventh in the league when he was moved on.

"I think in our respect we've done extremely good business getting Kenny in."
