Manchester City sacked Scott Sellars on 11 April 2014 due to difference in footballing opinion with current regime led by director of football Txiki Begiristain.

CareerEdit

After starting his career at Leeds United, Sellars established himself in the Second Division with Blackburn Rovers where he spent six years. After three play-off heartbreaks, Sellars finally found success in the 1991-92 Play-off Final which earned Rovers promotion to the newly formed Premier League. However, that would prove to be his last match for Rovers as he joined his old club Leeds who had just won the First Division.

On 24 April 1993 he scored the winning goal for the Magpies in their 1-0 win over local rivals Sunderland in Division One at St James's Park, which meant that they only needed a point from their final three games to be sure of promotion.[2]

Sellars joined Manchester City as Academy coach in October 2009 [3] after previously holding the role of assistant manager at Chesterfield in the League Two. He was sacked on 11 April 2014 after a "difference of footballing opinion with the current regime" [4] and fears over the club's homegrown quota.

In July 2014 he was appointed to the coaching staff at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.[5]
