English coaches dropping like flies

MOST COMMENTED

Already in the 2012-13 season, 47 head coaches and 56 assistant coaches have lost their jobs in the four tiers of English soccer.

Richard Bevan, chief executive of the League Managers' Association, has described the number of sackings this season as embarrassing: "That's over 100 people, 100 managers, 100 families," Bevan said. "I'm not sure where the arrogance of football comes from that we don't have to behave as any other industry."

Four EPL managers -- Roberto Di Matteo at Chelsea, Brian McDermott at Reading, Nigel Adkins at Southampton and Mark Hughes at QPR - have been sacked this season, but job security at the lower division seems even more volatile. Seventeen coaches in second division have been dismissed.

"We need to work as a group - the Premier League, the Football League, the Professional Footballers' Association, the League Managers' Association - to ensure that we have better training not only for managers but also an understanding of how you run a football club," Bevan said.
