The Premier League is seen as the best league in the world by the majority of fans, players and managers alike, so naturally it's the dream destination for any aspiring coach.

The division brings in the most money from TV and commercial deals out of any league in the world, while the owners in charge of the 20 clubs are some of the wealthiest people on the planet.

As a result, Premier League players and managers are paid far better than in any other division in world football.

Therefore, the 20 managerial jobs available at any one time are highly sought after and those chosen by each club must perform at all times. If they don’t, alternatives will be turned to very quickly in a bid to improve results.

The shelf-life of a Premier League manager is incredibly short as a result.

Managers are constantly linked with being sacked, and keeping their job for an extended period has become very difficult.

Who is the longest-serving current Premier League manager?

The longest-serving current Premier League manager is Jurgen Klopp. He was appointed by Liverpool back in October 2015 and has enjoyed plenty of success in charge at Anfield. The German guided Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 2020, while they also lifted the 2019 Champions League under his reign.

However, on 26 January 2024, the 56-year-old announced out of the blue that he will leave the Reds at the end of the season, citing the fact that he is "running out of energy" as the reason behind his decision. He will depart the club after almost nine years in charge.

Pep Guardiola (Man City) is the second longest-serving current Premier League manager after he joined the club in July 2016. Thomas Frank (Brentford) is third, Mikel Arteta (Arsenal) is fourth and David Moyes (West Ham) is fifth.

Oliver Glasner is the Premier League boss with the least time in the dugout. He replaced Roy Hodgson in February 2024 after the football legend resigned from his post at Crystal Palace amid health issues.

Paul Heckingbottom was the first manager to be sacked during the 2023-24 season as Sheffield United pulled the trigger after an embarrassing 5-0 loss to fellow promoted side Burnley on 5 December. Chris Wilder returned to the club to replace him in the dugout.

Julen Lopetegui had previously left Wolves just before the opening weekend of the campaign, with Gary O'Neil taking over at Molineux after he was replaced by Bournemouth at the end of the 2023-24 campaign.

Nuno Espirito Santo was hired by Nottingham Forest after the sacking of Steve Cooper on 19 December 2023.

Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea and Erik ten Hag at Man Utd are both under pressure, although it looks as though their jobs are safe for now.

Which Premier League managers were sacked in 2022-23?

Fourteen Premier League managers were sacked during the 2022-23 season.

Chelsea, Southampton and Leeds (the latter two of whom were relegated) sacked two managers last campaign, with the Blues getting rid of Thomas Tuchel and his replacement Graham Potter, while Southampton sacked Ralph Hasenhuttl and his successor Nathan Jones.

Leeds then followed suit, firing Jesse Marsch and Javi Gracia just a few months later.

Potter also left Brighton & Hove Albion in September, although he wasn’t sacked by the Seagulls. Instead, he opted to leave in order to take over at Chelsea.

Scott Parker was the first Premier League manager to lose his job during the 2022/23 campaign after he was sacked by AFC Bournemouth at the end of August. His dismissal came after the Cherries’ 7-0 defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Thomas Tuchel, Bruno Lage, Steven Gerrard and Ralph Hasenhuttl also lost their jobs before the start of the 2022 World Cup.

Frank Lampard began the sackings in 2023 when he was dismissed by Everton in January. However, the Englishman wasn't out of work for long when he began caretaker manager at Chelsea, returning to the club he managed between 2019 and 2021.

However, he was replaced by Mauricio Pochettino when the season ended. The Blues owners were always clear that he would not be given the job on a full-time basis.

After Lampard was sacked by Everton in January, Jesse Marsch, Nathan Jones and Patrick Vieira soon followed.

Antonio Conte was then sacked after a controversial press conference after Tottenham’s 3-3 draw against Southampton, while Brendan Rodgers and Graham Potter were both dismissed on 2 April.

Javi Gracia was the last manager to depart in 2022-23, getting the boot on 3 May.
