Manuel Pellegrini and two others deserve the sack

There has been talk doing the rounds on social media over the past fortnight regarding the futures of several managers in the biggest leagues in Europe.

Whilst there has been a wide range of names put up for the sack, I've bottled it down to three gaffers who really should be sacked in the morning.

3. Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti is seen as one of the best managers in the world alongside Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, but his spell at Real Madrid may be about to come to a shuddering halt due to the Spanish club's recent slump in form.

A first leg defeat to Juventus in the Champions League semi-final hasn't done Real any favours ahead of their home tie against the Serie A champions, and an unconvincing draw against Valencia, paired with a luck-struck win over Sevilla a fortnight ago, has put Carlo Ancelotti's job on a very thin tightrope.

If Real Madrid fail to win the Champions League this year, I think the Italian will be waving goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu. What's the point in going back on yourself? Last year's Champions League victory was impressive and I was expecting them to be pushing for the double with the La Liga title under their belts as well, but as it seems, they'll be missing out on that as well. Maybe it's time to get rid.

2. Pep Guardiola

Former Barcelona manager, Pep Guardiola, is finding enjoyability hard to come by in the second half of the season with Bayern Munich. They were knocked out of the Champions League by Pep's former side on Tuesday night, although it has to be said they went out fighting for their lives, and have been beaten in back-to-back Bundesliga games; a statistic you don't come by too often.

Again, no progression is being made at the Allianz Arena and the board need to realise that a replacement manager is required. Who that could be remains to be answered, but for now, Guardiola is not the resolution to the Bavarian club's problems.

1. Manuel Pellegrini

What a horrible, horrible season for Manchester City fans. Not only have they seen Chelsea steal the title from their hands, but they were embarrassingly ejected from the Champions League, not to mention being knocked out of the FA Cup by Middlesbrough shockingly and the League Cup by Newcastle United.

A Champions League spot for next season has already been claimed, but the battle for second place remains to be seen.

The waste of money spent on Wilfried Bony has been the single worst transfer move I think we have seen in the Premier League this season. Why would you pay £28 million for a player that is going to sit on the bench every week?

It's time to say goodbye Manuel. You had your chance and you blew it.
