It is never nice to see a manager be sacked, although we have already witnessed it a number of times in the Premier League this season.
Scott Parker was the first to be sacked by Bournemouth at the end of August following a 9-0 defeat to Liverpool, although when you read between the lines, it is more to do with his comments than the team’s performances you would have to assume.
Chelsea decided to pull the trigger on Thomas Tuchel in a surprising move, although, again, it has since been revealed that the ownership of the club and the manager clashed on views. Graham Potter is the man that has since been given control, therefore leaving Brighton & Hove Albion to search for a new manager.
And, for those that like to bet on the sites available at www.apostas-desportivas.org, we could potentially see another manager be sacked imminently.
Indeed, Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers cut a figure of destitution last night following their 6-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur and admitted that the owners could be considering his position as the club’s boss.
The Foxes have had a poor start to the campaign, with the team yet to win a Premier League fixture after seven games; the only side not to have done so. Additionally, the one point that they have at the moment means the club is rock-bottom and in a precarious position, even at this early stage of the season.
Speaking about the situation that currently presents itself at the King Power Stadium, Rodgers admitted that he was under a lot of pressure following the defeat to Spurs.
“I come in every day and do my work. I totally understand the frustration of supporters. I can’t hide from that. It’s my responsibility,” Rodgers said as quoted by Express UK.
“Whatever happens I’ll have a huge amount of respect for them [the owners] because they’ve given me great support. I understand the game,” the tactician added.
Of course, some will highlight that he has not been given the help he needs in regard to recruitment, while he also lost some key players who were massive influences in the dressing room.
The loss of the likes of Kasper Schmeichel and Wesley Fofana will have been huge, and it is clear to see on the pitch, too. The club has conceded 22 goals in their seven games so far, and that does not appear to be improving any time soon.
