As has been widely reported, ex-QPR Asssistant Manager, Kenny Jacket, who resigned as Swansea manager a few weeks ago, is the new Reserve Team Manager of Manchester City.
BBC - Jackett to head Man City reserves
Manchester City have appointed Kenny Jackett as their reserve team coach.
However, despite his title, the former Swansea boss will not be restricted purely to reserve affairs and will be part of the first-team set-up.
Jackett, 45, replaces Frankie Bunn who left to link up with new Coventry manager Iain Dowie in February.
The arrival completes City's coaching team, which has also seen Eric Steele come in as goalkeeping coach for Tim Flowers, who has also joined Coventry.
Jackett decided to step down as Swansea manager three weeks ago after nearly three years in charge.
The former Wales international said he felt he no longer had the full support of the club, players or supporters at the Liberty Stadium.
Man City manager Stuart Pearce said: "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." BBC

And for ex-QPR Player, Danny Murphy: Good News
BBC - Well handed Murphy injury boost
Danny Murphy Motherwell defender Danny Murphy has received a boost with news that he has not broken a bone in his foot.
The 24-year-old was injured during the 2-0 defeat by Hearts in Monday's SPL game at Fir Park.
"The foot is not broken after I got the all clear from the scan," he told the club's official website.
"I'm delighted with that news, although I didn't think it was broken at the time. It is badly bruised, so I need to wait to see when it disappears."
Murphy said he was a quick healer and aimed to return to training in time for Saturday's SPL game against Dundee United.
The defender moved to Fir Park from Cork City earlier this season and signed a deal until 2009 with Maurice Malpas' side.
Murphy, who was named in the Eircom League Team of the Year for 2006, previously played for West Ham United, QPR, Swindon Town and Margate. BBC
