'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jackett Joins Man City Reserves

Former manager Kenny Jackett has quickly found a new job as he joins Premiership side Manchester City as their new Reserve team manager.

The news came out earlier this week in a local Manchester paper and they expected that a deal would be finalized soon.

City boss Stuart Pearce was delighted to see his arrival and said: 'We're delighted to have him here.

'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.

'He'll take our reserves, but because of the squad and the nature of how we operate he will be working with the first team for a fair proportion of the week and will be involved on match days at the weekend.

'He's enthusiastic, he's a good man and I think he'll be a major asset to this football club.
