Football clubs have now become fond of sacking their head coaches when the results are not good. The era of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger is over when managers spend twenty years in one club. Nowadays, instant results are more important thing than process and long-term building.
Here are three football clubs who will find it hard to sack their current managers this season, no matter how poorly they perform:
1. Mikel Arteta - Arsenal
Arteta joined Arsenal in December 2019 to take over from Unai Emery. He ended the season winning the FA Cup title defeating Manchester City and Chelsea in the process. He won the Community Shield in July 2020 with a win over former club Man City.
Arteta's Arsenal began the 2021-22 season with three straight league defeats before recording three wins and a draw in the next four games. Arsenal will not sack Arteta because they believe in his process.
2. Ronald Koeman - Barcelona
Koeman was brought in in 2020 to replace Quique Setién at Barcelona, ending his spell as the Dutch national team coach. Koeman is in his second season in charge, and it is already looking worse than the first.
Despite Barca's poor results Koeman may not get sacked this season even if the performances don't improve. Barcelona is in debt and has not even been able to settle Setien's wages. The team is weak, and they can understand the poor performances is not only Koeman's fault.
3. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - Manchester United
Solskjaer's appointment as United manager in 2018 divided opinion among fans, former players, and pundits. Since then, Solksjaer has failed to win the fans over as United has gone four years without winning a trophy. However, the United hierarchy believes in Ole's process and abilities.
