Two Of The Best Managers That Are Currently Unemployed.

Following a string of poor results, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's tenure at the club is certainly coming to an end. If he is fired, there has been a lot of talk about who could take his place. Tottenham Hotspur has signed Antonio Conte, and he is no longer on the market.

There aren't many world-class managers out there looking for work right now. So, not only Manchester United, but any elite team seeking for a quality manager right now would have a difficult time finding one.

1. Santo Nuno Espirito

Santo's time at Tottenham Hotspur did not go as well as he had hoped. The Portuguese were ousted after barely four months in charge of the club. While Spurs' football was not very entertaining to watch during Santo's tenure, it is impossible to hold him responsible for the club's deficiencies. Because the 47-year-old was not the club's first choice, Spurs must bear responsibility for making a poor choice in the first place.

Santo was never going to be a long-term fixture at the club, it's obvious now. The former Valencia manager, on the other hand, has shown that he is a far better manager than he was at Spurs. The former Valencia manager, on the other hand, has shown that he is a far better manager than he was at Spurs. Wolverhampton Wanderers won the Premier League under Santo's guidance. Under his guidance, Wolves finished seventh in England's top tier twice. The Portuguese prefer to play structured, disciplined football. While he had a lot of success with Wolves when he played that manner, Spurs fans were never going to like it.

2. Ernesto Valverde

Ernesto Valverde, like Nuno Espirito Santo, isn't recognized for his personality. The Spaniard would rather let his work speak for itself. When Barcelona hired Valverde as their manager in 2017, he was seen as a safe bet. He had big shoes to fill after taking over the Barcelona hot seat from the much-loved Luis Enrique. The Blaugrana's financial situation was deteriorating at this point, and the club's structure was beginning to show cracks.

If I were Villarreal, I would be looking for Ernesto Valverde and Diego Martinez right now.

Despite this, Valverde led Barcelona to two La Liga titles. Fans, on the other hand, will remember him for his heartbreaking Champions League losses to AS Roma and Liverpool. Barcelona was in command both times, only to blow significant first-leg leads away from home. Barcelona fired the manager in 2020, and Quique Setien was appointed in his place.
