If you cast your mind back to last season, a total of 10 managers were fired from their position as the top man at a Premier League club.
Indeed, that saw the likes of Marcelo Bielsa, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Sean Dyche all get the boot, while Watford had decided to boot three of the 10 in Xisco, Claudio Ranieri, and Roy Hodgson.
This has led to questions about whether it is worth placing a bet on the total number of managers to be fired this season being greater than what had been achieved last season. Some are considering utilizing the Betano platform as they know they can get competitive odds and choose from a variety of markets.
And, it would seem that it could be a good bet to make, as we have already seen a number of changes take place this season, despite not even having reached the midway point, or even the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
This season, four managers have been sacked as of the moment, while Brighton & Hove Albion had to change their manager after Graham Potter succeeded Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea; something they managed to do by appointing Roberto De Zerbi.
The German was the second manager to get his P45 this season, though, as he followed Scott Parker at AFC Bournemouth, with the club’s hierarchy appearing to have been unhappy with how he was conducting himself in interviews and to the press.
Bruno Lage’s gig at Wolverhampton Wanderers also recently came to an end after the Portuguese manager was unable to turn the Old Gold’s fortunes around, while Steven Gerrard became the latest managerial casualty.
Aston Villa, have, though reacted quickly after making the decision – unlike Bournemouth and Wolves – and have decided to appoint Unai Emery as their next boss at Villa Park, with the Spaniard tasked with trying to get the club up the table and then perhaps challenging for bigger achievements, such as a place in European football.
However, we might not be done just there with the managerial carousel, as there are still a number of names that could be on the block. For instance, the pressure is building on Leeds United’s Jesse Marsch as his team continue to struggle, while Brendan Rodgers may still be feeling the heat at Leicester City, although the 4-0 win against Wolves at the weekend has perhaps helped him out and got him some more time at the King Power Stadium.
