Manager profile

After a year-and-a-bit with Hull, and after Mandaric and Hoos left City, Pearson returned for a second stint with the club. Sven-Goran Eriksson had been sacked and City's Thai owners looked to Pearson, seemingly after failing to lure former boss Martin O'Neill back to the club. It took some negotiations with Hull for his services, but Pearson rejoined in November 2011 and promptly won his first game back in charge, a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
