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, 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 better than in any other league in the world.

Who is the longest-serving current Premier League manager?

The shelf-life of a Premier League manager is now at its shortest in history, with coaches only given a brief period of time to improve results before they are sacked.

As a result, managers are constantly linked with being given the boot and keeping their job for an extended period has become very tricky.

READ: Which football managers have been sacked this season?

The longest-serving current Premier League manager is Jurgen Klopp. He was appointed by Liverpool back in October 2015 and has enjoyed much 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.

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.

Gary O'Neil is the manager with the least time in the dugout at his current club. He was sacked by Bournemouth at the end of last season, but was chosen by Wolves as the man to replace Julen Lopetegui with less than a week until the Premier League opener.

Which Premier League managers were sacked in 2022-23?

14 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 season, 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, getting the boot on 3 May.
