Koeman has been under severe pressure to take Barcelona back to their glory days. So far, Keoman and his Barcelona team has been far from convincing in push to win the Spanish League and the UEFA Champions League trophies.

Presently, there are talks concerning the possibility of Koeman being replaced by a new coach before the end of this season. However, if Keoman is sacked, he can earn as much as €6 million from Barcelona. Barcelona is not the worst team in Spain or Europe but the growing concerning Koeman's future was heightened after Barcelona were humbled at home by Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

3. Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)

Mikel Arteta is another manager whose time in his club heavily depends on the level of improvement he can achieve in coming weeks. Arteta has been heavily criticised by a lot of football fans and analysts in the past few months because of his team's poor start to the new campaign.

Although Arsenal have recorded consecutive back to back victories in the Premier League, Arteta's ability to keep his job heavily depends on his ability to keep on winning more matches. Arteta could lose his job if he fails to qualify Arsenal for the UEFA Champions League or the UEFA Europa League.

4. Jocelyn Gourvennec (Lille)

The next manager who seriously stands a chance of being replaced before the end of this season is Lille's manager, Jocelyn Gourvennec. Lille enjoyed a great 2020/21 season which saw them win the French League. However, the 2021/22 season has been horrible for Lille and Jocelyn Gourvennec will be placed for the bad season they are having so far.

Lille has played 6 matches in the French League and they have gotten just 5 points. They have scored 7 goals and conceded 12 goals. Lille is placed 15th in the French League table after 6 weeks of football. It won't be long before owners of Lille starts asking Jocelyn Gourvennec some question.
