Premier League managers want transfer window like players

The Premier League has become notorious for manager swapping over the past few years. Particularly last year, as many as fourteen managers were replaced with the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Antonio Conte and Patrick Vieira leading the list. 

This year, however, things have slowed down, with only four managers being replaced. Julien Lopetegui left Wolves right after the season began, but his replacement, Gary O’Neil, has been a great find, steering the Midlands club in the right direction.

Paul Heckingbottom was then sacked as the Sheffield United manager, before Steve Cooper was replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo at Nottingham Forest. Most recently, Roy Hodgson was replaced at Crystal Palace by Europa League winning manager Oliver Glasner owing to health concerns for the veteran. 

Unlike managers, players can only be offloaded or brought in during the summer or January transfer windows. Premier League officials have considered a similar approach for a number of reasons, one of them being job security for the people in charge of the teams.

Other leagues are not as frivolous as the English league when it comes to parting ways with managers. Chelsea, for one, have had Thomas Tuchel, Frank Lampard, Graham Potter and now, Mauricio Pochettino ever since Todd Boehly and BlueCo took over the club. They have been known for sacking managers when results don’t go their way, but now, it seems like they are sticking to their guns with the Argentine. 

Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Xavi have perhaps set the precedent by announcing that they will leave in the summer, opening up the idea for a designated window where managers can be shuffled around across Europe. 

  1. Has the manager transfer window been confirmed?

    No, the plan is still in its initial stages.
