Three candidates for the vacant manager´s job at Manchester City appear to be ruled out of the running.

City are searching for a new boss after sacking Stuart Pearce on Monday and Gerard Houllier, the former Liverpool manager, had been linked with the post along with Dutch pair Louis van Gaal and Ronald Koeman.

However, Houllier´s current club Lyon have issued an official statement announcing their manager will not be leaving for either City or Dynamo Kiev, with whom he was linked in the French media, while van Gaal and Koeman have also distanced themselves from the speculation.
