Summer Managerial Sack Race

Published Add your comment

Football News

Even with the final days of the season still to be played out, many sets of supporters will be planning for what they want to see in the summer, and depending on their position, a new manager will be on the menu for many.

Despite each side's fortunes for the reminder of the season yet to be decided, a number of names are already in the frame to get the chop come the end of the season.

GMF therefore decided to look at those who need to buck up their ideas before then and then end of the campaign, or those whose future is out of their hands.

Alex McLeish - Aston Villa

The Scot may have lost three influential personal before the season began, but his negative tactics have won him few fans at Villa Park.

In truth his history at near neighbours Birmingham City had the fans in uproar before the season began, and few have returned as crowns continue to tumble.

Will avoid relegation, but look a long shot for the top half.

Roberto Di Matteo - Chelsea

Could potentially finish in the top four, win the FA Cup and reach the Champions League final and still be surplus to requirements come the summer, with a more experienced man likely to be preferred.

How he deals with substantial funds, as well as the demands that come with rebuilding a squad to compete for the title is important, and an area he has limited experience in.

Kenny Dalglish - Liverpool

Success in the cups might be all good and well, but another season without the Champions League is a worry for the club's coffers as much as it is for Dalglish's future.

The club's league form has been pitiful, and after substantial investment over the past 12 months, will Dalglish be trusted with more funds come this summer.

Roberto Mancini - Manchester City

With the title looking on it's way to Old Trafford, Mancini is staring down the barrel of claiming just one trophy in two and half years at City, and given the funds available it might not be good enough to help him keep his job.

The Italian has even admitted to not preparing for matches, something that won't go down well with the club's hierarchy, and given the talent in the squad many feel they should be cruising to success.
