PostSubject: announced that Mark Hughes   Thu Aug 18, 2011 8:10 pm

In August 2008, the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group. The takeover was immediately followed by a flurry of bids for high profile players; the club broke the British transfer record by signing Brazilian international Robinho from Real Madrid for £32.5 million.[27] City finished tenth, and also reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.

During the summer of 2009, the club took transfer spending to an unprecedented level, with an outlay of over £100 million on players Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz, Kolo Touré, Emmanuel Adebayor, Carlos Tévez and Joleon Lescott.[28] On 19 December, it was announced that Mark Hughes had been replaced as manager by Roberto Mancini.[29] City finished the season in fifth position in the Premier League, narrowly missing out on a place in the Champions League, and compete in the UEFA Europa League in season 2010–11. Prior to the start of the 2010–11 season, Man City completed the transfers of Jérôme Boateng,[30] Yaya Touré,[31] David Silva,[32] Aleksandar Kolarov[33] and Mario Balotelli.[34] James Milner signed during the first week of the season.[35] Edin Džeko joined the club during the January 2011 transfer window.[36] On 16 April 2011, City reached the 2011 FA Cup Final, their first major final in over thirty years, defeating derby rivals Manchester United in the semi-final to set up a meeting with Stoke City.[37] They won the final 1–0, securing their fifth FA Cup (and first since 1969) and their first major trophy since winning the 1976 League Cup. On 10 May 2011, the club qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time with a 1–0 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur.[38] On the last day of the 2010–11 season, City passed Arsenal for third place in the Premier League, thereby securing qualification directly into the Champions League group stage. Before the start of the 2011–12 season, City made a number of high profile signings, including Gael Clichy, Stefan Savić and Sergio Agüero. On 8th August 2011 as FA Cup winners they played Barclays Premier League champions and arch-rivals Manchester United F.C., but lost 3-2 at Wembley Stadium.
