Premier League

Managers Likely To Face The Exit Door Before The End Of October

The English Premier League week 9 came to an end with Manchester United conceding their worst defeat of the season against Liverpool. Liverpool started the match knowing a win would take them back to second on the log table, as they wasted no time to make themselves known at Old Trafford.

Goals from Naby Keita (Scored the first goal in the 5th minutes), Diogo Jota (Scored in the 13th minutes) and Mohamed Salah (Scored a hat-trick in the 38th, 45th and 50th minutes) secured all three points for Liverpool in a 5-0 goal feast. The match against Liverpool is Manchester United’s third defeat of the season as they lost to Aston Villa (1-0), Leicester City (4-2) and now Liverpool (Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only kept one clean sheet this season).

With Manchester United’s current form, Ole Gunner Solskjaer could be the next Premier League manager to be shown the exit door. After spending over €135 million in the summer transfer, Manchester United are yet to justify their huge spending (Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jordan Sancho were bought from Juventus, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund respectively).

Another coach who could be sacked before the end of October is former Netherlands manager and current Barcelona’s coach Ronald Koeman. Koeman, is yet to prove he is the right man to take Barcelona back to the top, as the Spanish giant are current 9th on the La Liga league standings with 15 points from 9 games. However, the El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid could be his final weeks with the club, as Barcelona are below their fiercest by 5 points (Real Madrid are currently top of the La Liga table with 2o points from 9 games).

At this point, it’s still unclear who would coach either Manchester United or Barcelona if they eventually fire their both coach. Who do you think could be the right man for Manchester United and Barcelona?
