Former Man City manager Malcolm Allison dies

Malcolm Allison, who coached Manchester City during the 1960s in the most successful era in the club's history, has died. He was 83.
Allison also managed Middlesbrough, Galatasaray, Sporting Lisbon, Kuwait and Toronto City but will be best remembered for his time at City, which announced Friday he had died.
He joined City's coaching staff as assistant manager to Joe Mercer in 1965, helping the team win the English championship, FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup across a three-year spell. Known as "Big Mal" and for his love of cigars, he later took over as City manager on two separate occasions.
Allison spent six years as a player with Charlton and West Ham before his career was cut short by tuberculosis.
