The new season has just begun, and the media is already washing the bones of coaches who disappoint with their results. But, unfortunately, these are the realities of sports: they do not suffer defeats here, and first of all, coaches become scapegoats. So let’s see who may be out of work soon.
Ole Gunnar Sulscher (Manchester United)
It will soon be three years since Sulscher started coaching Manchester United. No one expected him to last this long. Achievement!
But even though his club is one of the richest, Ole has not won anything yet. No small trophies, nor, of course, the NPL or the LCH.
And even despite the high-profile summer, when Ronaldo, Sancho and Varane joined the team, the game of “MU” is not happy yet. Having lost to Aston Villa with a score of 0:1, the Red Devils suffered their third defeat in four matches. They have already been eliminated from the League Cup and lost to the Young Boys in the LCH.
So far, there is no need to panic: United are at the top of the table and are struggling. But the Norwegian does not feel calm.
Ronald Koeman (Barcelona)
Barcelona started the season very badly, and the series of inconclusive results continues. Under whom the chair has been wobbling for a long time, the Dutch coach instils in Blaugrane a not very beautiful game, which neither the fans nor the management is happy about.
At the moment, Koeman is most likely awaiting dismissal, but he still has time to save himself — at least until there is a pause for the national team matches.
Now Barcelona is in the sixth position in the championship and has lost twice in the Champions League. Everything will be decided soon.
Max Allegri (Juventus)
Allegri returned to Juventus in the summer, and many believed that he would resurrect a regressed team.
Alas, no miracle has happened yet: JUVE started badly, scoring two points in four matches in Serie A. This is the worst start in 60 years, although Bianconeri has begun to improve.
People don’t like Allegri’s style of play either. It’s too conservative. Of course, no one will dismiss such a specialist so quickly, but he is restless right now.
Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)
Arteta has been teetering on edge for a long time. Last season he was not happy, but it all started quite sadly this year — with a defeat against Brentford, who last played in the top league 74 years ago.
The situation has calmed down a bit in recent matches: Norwich and Burnley were outplayed, and Tottenham was recently defeated — perhaps it was the best match of the Arteta Gunners.
Nuno Espirito Santo (Tottenham)
Another North London club, Tottenham, is also going through hard times.
Despite winning the first matches of the Premier League, Nuno does not please fans with the game. Tottenham is not impressive and is playing instead bleakly. Of course, you can’t win everything, but the humiliating defeat from Arsenal, and even the current one, cannot but affect the chances of the Portuguese staying at his post.
The derby may have already determined Santa’s fate. And maybe he will still be saved — everything is possible. Five coaches who may soon be fired
