Three managers resign after World Cup exit

It seems elimination from the group stages of a World Cup is to much for some, as three managers have already handed in their resignations.

Honduras boss Luis Fernando Suarez is the latest man in charge to resign from his job after his side finished bottom of Group E with zero points. Suarez's exit came shortly after Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni had resigned from his post after the Asian team finished last in Group C after one draw and two defeats.

Zaccheroni isn't the only Italian to resign from his managerial position, though. Azzuri boss Cesare Prandelli also quit after his country's 1-0 loss to Uruguay left them exiting the World Cup group stages for the second tournament running.

Despite Prandelli's immense popularity after turning around his side's fortunes following their 2010 exit, the 56-year-old felt he was no longer the man to take the Italian team forward.

One man who hasn't left his post, however, is England manager Roy Hodgson. The Three Lions were knocked out of the group stage of a World Cup for the first time since 1958, finishing winless in Group D.

Many were questioning whether Hodgson was the right man for the job, but FA Chairman, Greg Dyke was quick to come out in support of the 66-year-old.

Having been in the job for only two years, Dyke, and the rest of the board, decided to keep faith in Hodgson - who has managed clubs including Switzerland, Inter Milan and Liverpool in his career.

It may not have been the most popular decision, but sometimes it's refreshing for a manager to have time with his squad. If England don't perform at Euro 2016, then expect a resignation from him, as well.
