InjuriesandBans looks at who may be the next Premier League Manager to leave their position.
We profile all Premier League managers, from those vying for the title and European spots to those fighting to avoid relegation, and here are the favourites to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.
Everton’s manager Rafa Benitez has lost his past seven Premier League games!
Six managers have been fired thus far this season in the Premier League. This is a common occurrence in today’s game, with Premier League clubs preferring to get results now rather than later. As a result, it’s no wonder that Rafa is now the bookies’ favorite to be the next manager fired from his position.
At the time of writing, Rafa Benitez’s odds had dropped considerably, and he was as low as 1.65 with some bookies. With a Merseyside derby on the horizon, he faces an uphill battle to maintain his job. On Wednesday night, Liverpool will play at Goodison Park. With their present form, the high-flying reds will be expecting all three points.
Who else is in the Sack Race?
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is the next most likely to be sacked at 6.00, although the Saints are in better form than Everton, with two wins in their previous four games.
Claudio Ranieri, the recently hired manager of Watford, comes up next, with only two wins in his first six games. At 11.00, he is expected to be the next to leave, followed by a long shot in Leeds’ Marcelo Bielsa at 17.00.
Premier League managerial changes in 2021-22
Watford manager Xisco Munoz, who guided the team to promotion from the Championship in 2020-21 won the Sack Race… Xisco Munoz was the first manager fired in the 2021-22 Premier League season.
Nobody was surprised when the Premier League’s second manager was fired. Newcastle fired Bruce on October 20th, following their Saudi-led takeover. You can read more on the Arab owners of Football Clubs in this article.
Nuno was the third Premier League manager to be sacked, having lasted only 10 games as Tottenham manager before being fired on November 1.
Norwich City fired Daniel Farke on Saturday, November 6. Surprisingly, it occurred just days after the club’s first Premier League win of the season, a 2-1 big win against Brentford.
The next day, another Premier League managerial ”shooting” happened as Aston Villa coach Dean Smith was fired following a disappointing start to the season.
Following a devastating 4-1 loss against Watford, Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired. The Norwegian had spent much of his nearly three years in power doing just enough to avoid being fired, only for his good fortune to run out after a run of five Premier League defeats in seven games.
