10. Andriy Schevchenko 

Schevchenko most recently managed the Ukraine national team in Euros and helped them progress into the knockout stages of the competition. However, they were ultimately defeated by finalists England and Schevchenko is now on the market for new opportunities.

The former Roma boss ended his term with Roma at the end of the previous season and was replaced by Jose Mourinho. He was in talks to join Tottenham to replace Mourinho in London, but talks ultimately fell through between the two parties. 

7. Gennaro Gattuso 

Gattuso managed Napoli up until the 19/20 season, and was expected to be in charge of Fiorentina for the new season. However, he left three weeks after being announced as the new coach and never really got the chance to manage the team. 

6. Andre Villas-Boas 

Villas-Boas was dismissed from Marseille after he handed in his resignation following the club’s transfer decisions. He has managed Chelsea, Tottenham, Porto and Zenit in the past and is one of the few managers to have never played football.

Zidane parted ways with Madrid for the second time this summer, after failing to secure a trophy for Los Blancos. Despite that, he led them to their 34th La Liga title in 19/20, and will now embark on a new challenge at a new club, in all possibility. 

1. Antonio Conte 

Conte helped break Juventus’ Serie A winning streak with Inter Milan in his second season in charge of the Nerazzurri. He parted ways with Inter Milan due to management issues with the owners, and was linked to Spurs and Real Madrid over the summer. He ended up joining neither, though, and remains without a club to manage at the time.
