Brazilian full-back Maicon has jumped ship to Roma after failing to hold down a first team place at Manchester City.

The 31-year-old defender played just 11 times last season under Roberto Mancini but decided options were just as limited with new boss Manuel Pellegrini

Indeed, the new City boss made his position clear at the weekend during the team’s tour of South Africa.

“Maicon didn’t come here to the pre-season and he will not be in the squad at Manchester City this year,” he said.

With Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards ahead of him in the pecking order at The Etihad, the former Inter Milan full-back has chosen a return to Serie A

A statement on City’s website read: “Everyone at Manchester City wishes Maicon good luck at his new club.”
