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.
