Football Managers Who Went Into Obscurity After Leaving The Premier League

The Premier League is one of the toughest and most popular leagues on earth. Some Premier League managers are known for their success, while some are known for their antics. Many managers who left the Premier League due to one problem or the other faded because they went to lower leagues. Let us look at top managers who faded into obscurity after leaving the Premier League.

1. Paolo Di Canio:

During the 2011/2012 season, Paolo Di Canio was signed by Sunderland. This transfer made many fans curious because Sunderland were in the middle of a relegation battle and they were running out of time. He miraculously saved them from relegation after a 3-0 victory over Newcastle United. After spending just one year with the team, he was dismissed from the team five games into the 2013/2014 season.

2. Paul Jewell:

Paul Jewell was the main reason why Wigan Athletic were not relegated for a very long time. Under Paul Jewell, Wigan Athletic were promoted to the Premier League in 2005, and stayed in the Premier League till he joined Derby County two seasons later. Unfortunately, under Paul Jewell, Derby County finished with only 12 points and were relegated, the lowest attained point in Premier League history. He resigned later in 2008. Since then, his fame went into obscurity.

3. Remi Garde:

While he was at the French league, he led Lyon to win the Coupe de France and the Trophee des Champions. However, his performance as a manager dropped when he came to Aston Villa. Gabriel Agbonlahor said this during an interview, "Garde was the worst manager I ever played under." Jack Grealish also made this statement, "Remi Garde has just told me off for smiling." Remi Garde left Aston Villa without completing a season, due to his poor management.
