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.

Daniel Farke image description Norwich GBR Insecure
Difficult to know - Farke is immensely well-liked but his team went down with a whimper.

Dean Smith image description Aston Villa GBR Insecure
Aston Villa survived by the skin of their teeth. Will the club hierarchy trust Smith in the transfer market again after the massive outlay last season?

Losing out on the Champions League after being in the top four for so long. Ouch.

Werder Bremen survived and Kohfeldt will be retained but there isn't complete confidence in him.

David Wagner image description Schalke DEU Insecure
Schalke's post-Christmas form is shocking and Wagner is under serious pressure. The summer will be key to the coach's future.

The FA Cup victory will stand Arteta in good stead but Arsenal definitely need to improve in the league next season.
img description

img description
Frank Lampard image description Chelsea GBR Secure
