GONE - MARTIN SCHMIDT

Bayern 2-0 Augsburg: Match Stas, Player Stats, FC Ratings

It just goes to show that even if a club is unlikely to be relegated, one bad run can be enough to bring a sharp end to your reign.

Martin Schmidt's Augsburg side have won just one match in nine but sit five points clear of the relegation play-off spots and a whole nine clear of the top main relegation positions.

Yet their 2-0 loss at Bayern on Friday signalled the end for the Swiss, who lasted just 11 months in the position before losing his job yesterday.

That being said, his win % since being appointed last April is just 28% - not exactly stellar, though the bottom of the Bundesliga is particularly tight this season.

WHAT IS JOB SECURITY?

FC have devised an algorithm which tracks news stories and sentiment regarding coaches for the top five leagues in Europe, plus the English Championship.

Once a week, we cross-reference our data with our group of league-specific experts to reorder the list and change manager status based on the data available.

We then outlay the data based on the format used in Championship Manager to highlight who is safe, and who is moving closer to the exit door.

You can bookmark the link below where the Job Security section will be updated each week.
