Becoming a successful manager and building a legacy at a club is the prime ambition for every Football Manager 2015 gamer who dreams of taking their favourite team all the way to the top. There are numerous ways in which the modern day manager can make a name for themselves, with dominating the domestic league like Bayern Munich or enjoying a meteoric rise from the pits of despair to the top flight in the manner that Bournemouth have just two ways that a manager can enjoy a prosperous career.http://www.bookies.com begin to list the next potential managerial casualty, and in the cut-throat business of modern day football management when even those who have won a league title have lost their job, it is looking increasingly likely that the following names will be looking for new clubs this summer.
Retaining the Premier League title is one of the most difficult feats for any manager to achieve, with other contenders making considerable efforts in the transfer market to knock the league winners off their perch. Manuel Pellegrini led Manchester City to a thrilling title victory in a race with Liverpool which went down to the wire in 2013/2014, but the manner in which they have tried to defend their crown has been hugely disappointing. They have never looked likely of challenging run-away champions Chelsea at the summit, with numerous periods of inconsistency and poor performances ultimately costing them dear. Pellegrini’s side have looked a shadow of the team that stormed to the title, with the likes of Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure enduring poor seasons which has only added to their demise. Rumours continue to persist of a move for Pep Guardiola this summer as Pellegrini’s replacement, and it seems only a matter of time before the highly-experienced Chilean is shown the door at the Etihad Stadiium.
Being manager of Real Madrid is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious jobs in world football, but the fact that Fabio Capello was sacked after winning the La Liga title in 2007 straight away illustrates the insurmountable pressure that managers are under to bring success and play an attractive brand of football. Winning the Champions League and Copa Del Rey in 2013/2014 may have provided Carlo Ancelotti with breathing space after watching city rivals Atletico Madrid win the La Liga title, but as they look destined to miss out on the league title once again this season, it has further fuelled speculation that Italian could be on his way out of the Bernabau this summer. Ancelotti has cut a forlorn figure on the sidelines as his team have stuttered at crucial stages of the season, particularly in La Liga where they let a commanding lead slip to allow Barcelona to steal a march and put themselves just one win away from the title. Retaining their Champions League crown may be the only thing that saves Ancelotti from the sack, but falling at the semi-final hurdle against Juventus could prove to be the final straw for Florentino Perez.
With West Ham set for a comfortable mid-table finish and soon to move into the Olympic Stadium as their new home, it would be safe to assume that everything is rosy in the garden at the football club. However, a growing number of fans have become disenchanted with the style of football Sam Allardyce continues to play, and have called for the board to displace him for a manager who would spark the excitement and entertainment factor back into West Ham. It seems incredibly harsh to condemn a manager who has built a fine reputation for building teams who are more than capable of remaining in the Premier League, but the board may be forced into a decision if the volume of disapproval from the fans continues to increase. The fact that West Ham have previously approached managers whilst Allardyce was in charge may be an indication that a change could happen this summer, but while an approach for outgoing Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp was always likely to end in failure, it remains to be seen who the club will turn to in order to bring an exciting brand of football with them to their new stadium.
