Nobody likes losing their job and football managers are no different. Sadly, the industry they find themselves in is ruthless and getting sacked is almost inevitable if the team underperforms during the season. Ask Jose Mourinho.
MOURINHO SACKED AGAIN
The Portuguese is hailed as one of the modern-day greats but has got the sack at every club he has ever managed. Pundits had been calling Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur’s Chairman to pull the plug on their relationship with Mourinho for some time now and the club was left with no option but to part ways with the Portuguese manager.
The timing of the move can be questioned as it comes less than a week before the season-defining League Cup final for Spurs. His position at Tottenham came under regular scrutiny but in reality, Jose could have brought silverware to the club after 13 long years if they were to beat Manchester City in the League Cup final on April 25. Now, former Spurs midfielder Ryan Mason has been handed over the interim manager position and he has taken charge of the recent training session.
Along with Jose, there are two other managers from the Premier League whose future looms precariously and they are:
SAM ALLARDYCE (West Bromwich Albion)
Big Sam’s impeccable record of never getting relegated from the Premier League seems all set to be shattered this season as West Brom seems destined for the Championship next season. Sam Allardyce replaced Slaven Bilic as the Baggies’ manager when he signed an 18-month contract at the Hawthorns.
If he miraculously manages to lead his club to safety then he automatically gets another year at the club but if they were to go down, then the club executives will meet the English manager and they will decide his future collectively.
STEVE BRUCE (Newcastle United)
The mood up in the Northeast at Newcastle seems to be improving as the team managed to pull off back-to-back wins in the Premier League. The situation at the club has been in dire states for some time now. Their owner Mike Ashley wanted to sell the club but a deal can’t be brokered for now. The fans for quite some time have been disappointed with the way the team has been handled over the years. There were plenty of discontent people with Steve Bruce at the helm but Mike Ashley has made it certain that Bruce will remain at the club at least till the end of the season.
If Newcastle were to go down then we could see a change at the Toons club but for now, it looks settled for Steve Bruce’s future.
