Roberto Mancini and the other manager ins outs
As the end of the season approaches in the top leagues, there is a lot of question about who will appear where next season. One big managerial exit this week is the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson who departs Manchester United after 26 years in change.
But while one manager leaves another must arrive. Manchester United have announced that Everton manager David Moyes will be Sir Alex's successor at the end of the season. This leaves a vacancy at Everton and bookies favourites are Wigan's Roberto Martínez and Cardiff's Malky Mackay. The Cardiff boss had this to say about links to the vacancy - "It's certainly very flattering to be linked to such a job like that but I've got something that we've built and we're really looking forward to coming into the Premier League"
On the blue side of Manchester, there is much question surrounding Roberto Mancini's future. With losing the Premier League title to Manchester rivals and a shock defeat to Wigan in the FA Cup there are doubts that he will remain as manager with reports saying that Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini will take over at the end of the season.
The Special One, Jose Mourinho is once again linked with a return to Chelsea. During 2004 – 2007, Mourinho guided Chelsea to two Premier League titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup.
As reports say he will leave Madrid at the end of a disappointing season with only the Copa Del Rey their chance of winning silverware.
Frank Lampard has said that Chelsea would welcome Jose back and that it would be a “great thing” for the return of the Special One.
Elsewhere, after another trophy-less season for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger is once again linked away from the Emirates with reports linking him to PSG which he has rejected. Bayern Munich will go into next season with the appointment of Pep Guardiola where they could have a Champions League trophy in their hands top follow their Bundesliga title.
