Top 3 managers likely to be sacked this season in the Premier League

14 November 2013 09:37

Managing a club at high-flying, most competitive league of the world, the Barclays Premier League is not that easy without some good results in the early stage. The fierce competition can give a wrong turn to some of the opinions, tactics and formations of the entire team that can completely scrutinize the club supports who even make it feel that it's time to leave.

With Paolo Di Canio, who succeeded to move off the Sunderland side from the relegation zone to the next Premier league season became the first victim who was sent off from the club's managerial role on 22nd September 2013. Ian Holloway who managed the Crystal Palace side a month later, and it seems like the positions of Martin Jol, Malky Mackay, Alan Pardew and Chris Hughton might also be questionable. Alongside, top Premier league teams Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are still lacking what the team actually is capable of and with new managers in all the three clubs namely Jose Mourinho, Manuel Pellegrini and David Moyes, the fans still are not satisfied with what they have delivered till date this season so far.

Whatever it be, it is almost sure that the premier league is surely going to see the departure of some managers and let us take a look at the possible top three who are almost near sure to be sacked this season.

Malky Mackay

With a derby win over Swansea might keep high hopes on the Cardiff City manager, it is yet very questionable at the managerial position that Mackay holds. The relation of Vincent Tan, the Chairman of the club, with the boss remains very tentative with the club currently fighting to lift themselves up from the premier league. Most of the fans believe that the Scottish boss is sure to see his way out with the likes of the head of recruitment, Iain Moody, who already left the club. On the other side, Norwich City seems to be interested in Mackay and it may not be long now to see him walk of the club who he brought to the Premier league this season.

Chris Hughton

The Canaries boss who already manager Newcastle United and Birmingham City, has not been able to repeat the good form that Paul Lambert brought to the club. With possible reports of interest in Mackay, it might be an end to the managerial career of the 54 year old at the Carrow road. The Norwich side were just in the relegation zone last weekend and are currently just a point above the relegation zone. It might not be shocking to see Hughton end his 18 months reign at the club this season.

Martin Jol

Without a doubt, the manager in the danger zone with a lot of pressure is surely the Fulham's boss Martin Jol. The cottagers lie in the relegation zone with just 10 points after 10 matches and their league position surely suggests that the Craven Cottage doors are surely going to close for the Dutch coach. The Fulham side have already faced big defeats against Manchester United and Liverpool side, and Shahid Khan, who recently bought the club might be likely to give a fresh call for a new manager with the end of Jol's two and a half year stay at the West London club.
