Scott Sellars (born 27 November 1965) is an English former professional football player, who was Head of Academy Coaching [1] at Manchester City.

Manchester City sacked Scott Sellars on 11 April 2014 due to difference in footballing opinion with current regime led by director of football Txiki Begiristain.


On 24 April 1993 he scored the winning goal for the Magpies in their 1-0 win over local rivals Sunderland in Division One at St James's Park, which meant that they only needed a point from their final three games to be sure of promotion.[2]

Sellars joined Manchester City as Academy coach in October 2009 [3] after previously holding the role of assistant manager at Chesterfield in the League Two.

He was sacked from Manchester City on 11 April 2014 after a "difference of footballing opinion with the current regime" [4] and fears over the club's homegrown quota.

Recently appointed to the coaching staff at Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.
