Job Security

Coaches from Top five leagues

Job Security lists every manager in Europe's top five leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1) and identifies which are most likely to be sacked in the coming weeks.

FC assigns a likelihood of their departure based around the traditional layout of Championship Manager, from Very Insecure (could likely lose their job in the next week), Insecure (Not performing well but not in full danger just yet), Slightly Insecure (a worrying run of form), through to managers who are secure and very secure at the opposite end of the scale. FC also offers odds on the next manager to be dismissed from these leagues and will also provide odds and information on the likely replacement for any vacant positions.

img description
Vincent Hognon image description FC Metz FRA Sacked

img description
Thierry Laurey image description Strasbourg FRA Very Insecure
A slow start to the season has him under pressure.
img description
Phillip Cocu image description Derby County GBR Very Insecure
Derby are a bit of a mess and Cocu doesn't look like he has answers. Writing appears to be on the wall.
img description
Uwe Rösler image description Düsseldorf DEU Insecure
Dusseldorf suffered relegation after finishing 17th in the Bundesliga.
img description
Lee Bowyer image description Charlton GBR Insecure
Charlton were relegated but Bowyer is a well-liked manager and there won't be a trigger decision on him.
img description
Florian Kohfeldt image description W. Bremen DEU Insecure
Werder Bremen survived and Kohfeldt will be retained but there isn't complete confidence in him.
img description
Thomas Tuchel image description PSG FRA Insecure
Although PSG seem to have recovered from their poor start to the season, ongoing disagreements with the board have the German on a tightrope.
img description
Rudi Garcia image description Lyon FRA Insecure
Was not a popular appointment in the first place and Garcia's Lyon are performing well below expectations.
img description
Christian Gourcuff image description Nantes FRA Insecure
Nantes have made a slow start to the season and with a notoriously trigger-happy board, the finger may be pointed at the coach.
img description
Stéphane Jobard image description Dijon FRA Insecure
Jobard has a long and conflicted history with Dijon and it's four defeats from four - he's under pressure.
img description
Ole G. Solskjaer image description Man Utd GBR Insecure
An opening day defeat to Crystal Palace has only strengthened the opinion of those that believe he is simply not up to this job.
img description
David Moyes image description West Ham GBR Insecure
Two losses in a row at the beginning of the new season. The pressure is on, already.

Bristol City look good so far under the new boss.

Roma performed well against Juventus but difficult to see much positivity ahead for them.
img description
Diego López image description Brescia ITA Slightly Insecure
Brescia were relegated, but he's still in charge, for now.
img description
Fabio Liverani image description Lecce ITA Slightly Insecure
Liverani's double promotion to get them to Serie A has instilled plenty of faith in him despite Lecce's relegation.
img description
Patrick Vieira image description Nice FRA Slightly Insecure
Nice have improved of late but are still below where a squad as talented as this should have finished in the table.
img description
David Guion image description Stade de Reims FRA Slightly Insecure
A poor start to the season from Reims, who should be performing to a higher standard, despite last season's heroics.
img description
Slaven Bilić image description West Brom GBR Slightly Insecure
Promoted last season but his team need points and it's difficult to know where they are going to come from.
img description
Steve Bruce image description Newcastle GBR Slightly Insecure
Bruce is likely to be ok as long as Newcastle are sufficiently far enough from the relegation positions.
img description
Alex Neil image description Preston NE GBR Slightly Insecure
Preston have struggled at the start of this season and he will need to be careful.
img description
Garry Monk image description Sheffield Wed GBR Slightly Insecure
On negative points and up against it, Monk needs time to shape a squad based on what he has to work with.
img description
Ronald Koeman image description Barcelona ESP Slightly Insecure
Koeman will be at the very least slightly insecure for pretty much this entire season.
img description
Pablo Machín image description Alavés ESP Slightly Insecure
Two losses already for Machin this season and it looks like it might be a tough slog.
img description
Óscar García image description Celta ESP Slightly Insecure
Guided Celta to safety by the skin of their teeth, but will the club allow for such a close call again?
img description
Gaizka Garitano image description Athletic ESP Slightly Insecure

img description
Unai Emery image description Villarreal ESP Slightly Insecure
Only just arrived but some bizarre team selections and poor results so far.

Fiorentina's form has been mixed and it's not clear if Iachini can get the best from a talented squad.
img description
Marco Giampaolo image description Torino ITA Slightly Insecure
Two losses out of two for Torino and it doesn't take much to exact change in Italy.
img description
Rolando Maran image description Genoa ITA Slightly Insecure
Some early bad results are already putting pressure on Maran's position.
img description
Eusebio Di Francesco image description Cagliari ITA Slightly Insecure
Will be important for Cagliari to get off to a good start to the season.

Luca Gotti image description Udinese ITA Slightly Insecure
Is currently fighting to keep his best players and it will be interesting to see what he is left with.

Steffen Baumgart image description SC Paderborn DEU Secure
Despite being relegated with just 20 points, Baumgart remains a popular figure after getting Paderborn promoted in the first place.
img description
Luigi Di Biagio image description SPAL ITA Secure
Spal are down so it's a rebuild in Serie B for Di Biagio.

Sebastian Hoeneß image description Hoffenheim DEU Secure

Pellegrino Matarazzo image description Stuttgart DEU Secure
A good run at the Bundesliga is what is expected of Stuttgart this year.
img description
Christian Streich image description Freiburg DEU Secure
Freiburg's form last season tailed off a little but this is still a team mixing it with clubs whose budget dwarfs theirs, thanks to Streich and his staff.
img description
Heiko Herrlich image description Augsburg DEU Secure
Augsburg have successfully survived in the Bundesliga for next season and Herrlich will lead the side into 2020/21.
img description
Oliver Glasner image description Wolfsburg DEU Secure
Wolfsburg are hugely inconsistent but Glasner's position doesn't appear to be under threat for now.
img description
Adi Hütter image description Frankfurt DEU Secure

Jean-Louis Gasset image description Bordeaux FRA Secure
Only appointed in the summer after Paulo Sousa's exit.
img description
Dean Smith image description Aston Villa GBR Secure
A 7-2 win over Liverpool is one of the most famous results in Villa's history. That will earn him plenty of respect.

img description
Brendan Rodgers image description Leicester City GBR Secure
Has retained the faith of the board despite missing out on the Champions League last year.
img description

Over £200m spent. Every dropped point will add huge pressure on Lampard but he is fine for now, even if the defence continues to leak goals.

Pep may want to leave on his own terms but it is highly unlikely the club would ever take the option to push him out.
img description
Ralph Hasenhüttl image description Southampton GBR Secure

Unlikely to be sacked but may wonder if he has taken the club as far as he can.
img description
José Mourinho image description Tottenham GBR Secure
The new Jose has been replaced by the old, surly one. But his likely huge contract and a decent upturn in form for Spurs to take them to the Europa League means he'll be there a while.
