Best Football Manager Who are Currently Unemployed
The Management in the World of Football
Management in any field is the most difficult thing to do. The world of football is not that different with this.
The manager is one of the most important constituents in a football club. Together with the support staff, the manager is like the glue that can hold the entire club together. They are both related as in strategies and also determining the 11 players who play for a match. A football club is much more difficult without a manager in charge.
Of course, the biggest and most important job of a manager is how a team wins a game and gets the full points. The final result is the orientation of the football game and if the result is not optimal it can lead to dismissal.
The manager will be praised as high as the sky if the team he is working on is able to perform optimally. Whereas if the team loses it will be an easy target for blasphemy.
As a result, the risk of being fired earlier than the agreement was made is commonplace in world football. It is not easy for the team to find a replacement manager who suits the team's wishes.
And here's a list of manager who haven't had a job yet.
5. Leonardo Jardim
The Portuguese coach has a record as a manager who has a good reputation wherever he has coached, except for his second period at AS Monaco
Jardim averagely has a pretty good number of points per match while coaching the club he is handling. In Braga he has 1.96 points per game, at Olympiacos he has 2.42 points per game, at Sporting Lisbon he has 2.20 points per game and 1.85 game points in charge of AS Monaco.
And not only that, he also managed promoted one of the best young talents in the world, Kylian Mbappe. When he coached AS Monaco and he managed has become the most popular figure at PSG right now. However, the poor performance he displayed with Monaco made him sacked and in the second period he was fired again.
Jardim is still 45 years old and has the managerial skills to take control of the top European clubs right now.
4. Luciano Spalletti
Spalletti has been a football manager since 1994. This 61 years old coach has been poor across Italian clubs such as Udinese, Rome, and Inter Milan.
His most successful career while coaching was when he won 4 Major trophies with Russian giants, Zenit St. Petersburg. Which includes 2 League titles. During training for 4 and a half seasons with the club, he won 2 points per game.
He returned to Italy after serving a 2-year sentence and handled AS Roma and earned 2,15 points per game. Despite his good performance, it is suspected that he was fired by AS Roma. That because of bad relations with club officials and treated Totti in his last season Capital Wolves.
His last job was when he handled Inter Milan and won 1.80 Points per game, but he was fired by the club because he could not meet the expectations of the higher ups. He is an experienced coach and has extensive knowledge of Italian football. Even though in Italy he is not good at winning trophies, he is able to maintain the stability of the team wherever he coaches.
3. Ernesto Valverde
The 56 years old coach has won 2.2 points per match, with the Catalan club he managed won the La Liga title on two season in a row.
However, his playing style which relies heavily on Lionel Messi, and that is the club's main weakness. In the end, this prestigious trophy fell to the main rivals Real Madrid.
The managerial abilities of this Spanish national coach, cannot be underestimated. That because he has coached clubs such as Atletico Bilbao, Villarreal and with Olympiacos he won the Greek League title.
Valverde has a coaching resume that is no too bad and it is not impossible that top European clubs will sign him one day.
2. Mauricio Pochettino
Just like Valverde, he was just fired from his club Tottenham Hotspurs. Even though under his tutelage. Spurs were transformed into an English club that was so reckoned with and had cheap players who were transformed into valuable, ones such as Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
A series of bad performances led Daniel Levy to decide to fire him on the way. At Spurs he averages 1.84 points per game from 300 games and is a healthy record.
Most importantly, the Spur's style of play comes alive because it not only relies on effectiveness but also flows the ball simultaneously and is pleasing to the eye.
Still 48 years old, the former Espanyol manger is without a doubt the best manager in the world today and is just waiting to be signed.
1. Massimiliano Allegri
The Italian tactician who would have thought that he had been unemployed for more than 1 year from the world of football. Allegri spent 5 seasons with the Old Lady (Juventus) and formed one of the strongest teams in Italy and Europe. He has won 5 Italian Serie A titles for Juventus and was able to reach 2 Champions League finals even though he did not win.
The former AC Milan manager is one of the top 5 coaches currently unemployed. Apart from winning a prestigious trophy. His very balanced style of play between defending and attacking has become a plus point during his coaching career and that is important to watch. 2.27 points per match has been collected by Allegri from 271 matches for the Bianconeri.
