Petrov leads trio out of Eastlands
Wednesday 09 June 2010
Martin Petrov, Benjani Mwaruwari and Sylvinho will all leave Eastlands this summer after Manchester City opted not to offer them new contracts.
All three were used only sparingly by manager Roberto Mancini last season and their departures were expected, with the Italian set to bring in a number of players during the close season.
Petrov was signed by Sven Goran Eriksson in 2007 and enjoyed an impressive debut season on the wing, but his time at City was blighted by injuries.
Striker Benjani was another Eriksson purchase, arriving from Portsmouth in January 2008. Sylvinho joined last summer after helping Barcelona win the Champions League but the 36-year-old was restricted to only nine starts.
