Pearce found his contract was terminated with immediate effect a day after the end of the season. Pearce took the reins from Kevin Keegan as the Man City manager and was off to a good start in his first season as the manager of the club. City went as high as forth place in the beginning but soon things went downhill and they finished the 05/06 season 15th. After Manchester City lost to Tottenham at the end of the season, Pearce himself admited that his days at City may be numbered. Stuart Pearce is not unemployed, though, as he took the management of England's Under-21 team in February.
