Top 5 football managers currently free and their next jobs

Individual brilliance can always turn a match around, but football at the end of the day is a team sport. Great managers can be the architects of dynasties of dominance, such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Johan Cruyff and Arsene Wenger. 

However, like all players, all managers were not created equal. Some better than others and some, waiting to return to the helm after getting sacked. Here, we look at the top 5 currently unemployed managers and their most likely destinations

5. Eddie Howe: Crystal Palace 

Palace are en route to something good this season but will need to part ways with Roy Hodgson to truly unlock their potential. This is where the next big thing in English football could come in and shake things up for the Londoners for good. 

4. Maurizio Sarri: Fiorentina

After losing two high-profile jobs at Juventus and Chelsea, Fiorentina might be the solution to Sarri’s plight. The Italian chainsmoker needs some time away from the spotlight to get back his confidence and the respect that he truly deserves. 

3.Ernesto Valverde: Athletic Bilbao

Tipping a manager with a return to a former club rarely works, but considering that Bilbao have gathered only 3 points from four games and are 19th in the table, a reunion between the former Barcelona coach and Bilbao looks likely. 

2. Max Allegri: PSG

Thomas Tuchel, much like Pochettino, went as far as the final, but could not deliver the Champions League to the Parisians. However, despite a French title every season, it seems likely that Max Allegri will take over at some point in the future, especially considering that PSG are keeping tabs on the coach. 

1. Mauricio Pochettino: Manchester United


Ever since he left Spurs after a career-high of reaching the Champions League finals, Pochettino has been out of a job. Manchester United is the most heavily rumoured destination for the Argentine coach, and it is hard to see Ole at the wheel when the next season begins.
