Premier League

Football Managers Out of Work, Available Football Managers

LUCIEN FAVRE

While his time at Borussia Dortmund led to rather brutal fashion at the turn of last year, Favre remains one among the brightest minds within the game, and his body of labor should make him a racing certainty to be interviewed by any ambitious Premier League outfit.

A Favre appointment could have echoes of Ralph Hasenhüttl should he arrive in English football, given the Saints boss was prematurely written by many after his time at RB Leipzig ended on a sour note.

If anything, the Frenchman boasts a far better CV than the Southampton boss, together with his adventurous tactical style winning both admirers and honours at Zurich and Dortmund.

MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI

He is one among the foremost , decorated bosses in European football. many big posts are up for grabs since he left Juventus in May 2019. However, for all his glittering CV, it seems no A-list club has put the emergency call out for Alllegri.

Reports suggest the Italian is quite happy to play the long game as he seeks out a replacement role, but could he get wanderlust after a lengthy sabbatical?

He’s reportedly been performing on his English during his time faraway from the sport , but if he does arrive within the Premier League don’t expect Bielsa levels of intensity week on week.

MAURIZIO SARRI

Unfairly treated or just unloved? The jury still seems to be out on whether Sarri deserves ad amongst the elite after being unceremoniously abandoning by both Chelsea and Juventus after one-year stints in both job.

Sarri’s tactics remain a source of frustration for a few , but his rags-to-riches managerial journey suggests he still has something to supply , albeit the most important names are unlikely to be certain him despite adding some impressive silverware to his CV in recent seasons.

FRANK LAMPARD

Sarri’s immediate successor is additionally back on the market after his surprise exit from Chelsea in January.

A poor run of form throughout the winter of 2020/21 put paid to Lampard’s short-lived reign at the club where he made his name, but he’s rumoured to be fired up for a fast return to the dugout when the proper opportunity arises.

A mixed picture from his time at both Derby and Chelsea makes it a stimulating question on where Lampard currently sits within the managerial organic phenomenon .

Will he wait around on the punditry circuit for an additional Premier League opportunity, or does he got to get his hands back dirty at Championship level?

He might need a promotion or trophy on his CV if he wants a long-term return to a top end Premier League club.

ERNESTO VALVERDE

The 56-year-old fell foul of the powers-that-be at Barca at the beginning of the year, but given the chaos that has ensued since Valverde left Camp Nou, the Spaniard’s image may are rehabilitated should any high-profile vacancies arise over the approaching months.

With two La Liga titles under his belt plus a diary of success during a foreign country (three titles with Olympiakos), Valverde features a CV he can rightly be pleased with , and his good grasp of English ticks an enormous box for any potential Premier League suitors.

PATRICK VIERA

Could an all-time Premier League legend finally be ready for a long-awaited return to those shores?

Viera’s name recognition alone should guarantee he makes the shortlist for any English top flight job that comes available over subsequent 12 months, although he’s still yet to prove he’s the maximum amount a winner within the dugout as he was on the sector of play.

A 7th place finish with Nice in his first season in Ligue 1 suggests Viera could have something to supply should any EPL side be willing to require the gamble on a football great who has just suffered his first major setback as a player or coach.
