The English Premier League has reached its business end of the season as teams look to cement their places whatever be their ambition- top 4, Europe, top 10 or just avoiding relegation. In this cut-throat competition success is the only thing that counts and failure to perform means that several managers are likely to be dismissed come the end of the season. We take a look at 5 of the likely candidates:
Brendan Rodgers has done an excellent job by all means at Liverpool but their failure to qualify for the Champions League next season may just mean that the Merseyside club decide to let the Northern Irishman go. Rodgers led Liverpool to an unexpected 2nd place last season. However, it was Luis Suarez who led the charge then and the Uruguayan’s sale to Barcelona meant that Liverpool once again lacked firepower this season. The raised expectations have not been met- a group stage exit in the Champions League, a likely slumbering 5th place performance in the EPL and a loss in the semi-finals of the FA Cup mean that Rodgers will anxiously await his fate, come the end of May. If he goes, odds are that departing Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to take his place.
