Premier devours coaches

It takes five dismissals in four months, the last one, that of Marco Silva. Clubs lose patience and technicians live with pressure.


Mysticism, club philosophy, long-term project and confidence in the idea of game and development of an institution by one person are over. The manager's figure is blurred in England. The Premier has definitely moved to the culture of what is immediately cultivated in the major European leagues and from which the competition in which football was born has always been proudly distanced.

Five coaches dismissed in just four months of competition confirm an upward trend that coincides, curiously, with the moment when English clubs began to pass into the hands of foreign investors demanding short-term results. The Wenger, the Ferguson and company became a luxury that only clubs whose budget guaranteed year after year results could afford.

At the moment, Quique Sánchez Flores, Pochettino, Emery and Javi Gracia had been the ones who had lost their jobs this season, until yesterday at the last minute he joined the Marco Silva group after his defeat in the Liverpool derby (5-2) . The toffees, who were setting a bad season despite having a more than acceptable squad, are in relegation places.

Five coaches who exceed four on 08-09 and who are close to matching the six of the 18-19, 16-17, 11-12 and 10-11 seasons. In the last decade, seasons 15-16 and 13-14 have been the worst figures have registered, with 12 dismissed technicians in each of them, while 17-18 closely follows them with ten. In Spain and Germany, for example, it has also changed five times of technicians this season, while in Italy there are six and in France only three

"In this culture of rapid consumption, it is as difficult to survive as to learn. Owners should not make value judgments as instantaneous," said Richard Bevan, director of the League Managers Association.

In addition to the layoffs that have already occurred, there are at least two more technicians who could lose their job in the next few days. Ralph Hasenhuttl, who has Southampton on the edge of the precipice, and Manuel Pellegrini, who got a breath with his victory against Chelsea but has lost again to Wolves.

Among the greats, Solskjaer, who comes from inflicting the first defeat to Tottenham de Mourinho, also manages to get his head out, but his United does not convince and it seems difficult to leave the tightrope from here to the end of the course.
