- Claude Puel (Leicester City):
The French manager did incredibly well to help Leicester end up ninth in the table from the 18th position last season. There were rumors stating there were disputes in the dressing room with some of the players not happy with Puel’s tactics but it has all faded now. That being said, the Foxes have registered only 32 points in 26 games with eight points above the relegation zone. If things remain the same, Puel might be shown the door soon.
- Domenico Tedesco (Schalke 04):
Schalke had a fantastic season last year under Domenico as the German club ended up as the runners-up in the Bundesliga to champions Bayern Munich. Domenico’s side has had a contrasting time this season as they have gained only 22 points in 19 games. Schalke look vulnerable at the back and have struggled to be effective going forward. The players lack motivation and it does not look all good for Domenico as he faces the chances of being sacked.
- Luciano Spalletti (Inter Milan):
This is one of the less likely sackings that might happen but Spalletti is surely not having a great time with Inter. With Inter 19 and 8 points away from Juventus and Napoli respectively, Spalletti’s side do not look in spite of sitting third in the league. Inter had spent considerably well in the summer and the board certainly wouldn’t be that happy seeing the Serie A table. Spalletti will need to change things around and at least try help Inter finish second in the league to avoid getting the boot.
- Eusebio di Francesco (AS Roma):
Francesco was given a lot of backing to help Roma challenge for the title but it is safe to say that he has underperformed in multiple ways. Roma haven’t looked threatening and instead are struggling to qualify for the Champions League being fifth in the table with only 34 points from 21 games. They were hammered in the Coppa Italia after a thumping 7-1 thrashing by Fiorentina and there is very little margin for error left for Francesco now.
- Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea):
The Italian manager did well with Napoli which earned him the managerial role at Chelsea. With a good start to the season, the fans gathered a lot of hope under Sarri but with time that has faded. Chelsea are now struggling to finish in the top four and their latest 6-0 loss to champions Manchester City only makes things worse for them. Sarri has to at least make sure the London side finish in the top four if he has the slightest chance to save his job.
