Brian Kidd has left Manchester City after 12 years

Brian Kidd has left Manchester City after 12 years with the club.

The coach has enjoyed a hugely successful time with the Citizens, winning 13 major honours. He’s served under the last three managers during his time at the Etihad Stadium, lifting all five Premier League titles.

He holds a distinct record of having played and coached at both Manchester clubs. He won the European Cup with the Red Devils in 1968 and scored 44 goals for City.

Kidd then went on to coach under Sir Alex Ferguson, winning four top-flight titles before moving to City 12 years ago.

It’s being claimed that he wants to remain in football if a significant opportunity arises.

TBR View: Kidd needs to be honoured by Manchester City legend as he’s left

Legend is term that is used loosely in modern-day football.

However, it’s exactly what Kidd is as he departs Manchester City.

Whilst his impact may well be in the shadows of Guardiola’s monstrous impact at City, it still exists.

Under-23s star Liam Delap’s praise of the 72-year-old is a sign of the coach’s experience at the highest level. The 18-year-old claimed that Kidd helped him hone his finishing.

His playing and coaching career have brought some great memories, especially in recent years. Kidd’s departure will be a bitter loss to the City backroom staff.
