5 high-profile managers who are free this summer
We are into the business end of the season and it is that time of the year when teams put their foot on the pedal to end the year on a high. Sometimes that's not the case though, as managers start to feel the heat, and the team falters and fails to meet the expectations.
This causes unrest among the club owners and piles the pressure on their managers. A year-long work often comes to nothing, owing to lackluster performances and disappointing results towards the end of the campaign.
In a bid to start afresh, clubs often feel the need to bring in a new manager and start from scratch. The replacements can be tricky because if they can't find the right man, the repercussions could be catastrophic.
Many a time, clubs end up appointing the wrong person. This is because they feel the compulsion to replace their current manager, but at the same time, have a limited pool of managers to choose from.
This summer though, this could end up not being the case as many top managers are looking for employment. Here's a look at 5 such managers who are free this summer:
#5 Peter Bosz
Although a relatively new name to many, Petr Bosz is a highly experienced manager who started out his professional managerial career in 2002 with Dutch club De Graafschap. The manager was sacked by Borussia Dortmund last year, following a difficult start to this season.
He has previously been at the helm of Heracles Almelo, Vitesse, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Ajax. One of the highest points in his career came in the 2016-17 season, when he finished runner-up in the UEFA Europa League with Ajax.
The young side was brilliant throughout the tournament, but had to settle for second place as they were comfortably beaten by Manchester United. Immediately following his success, he was roped in by the Borussia Dortmund board to replace the outgoing Tuchel.
Bosz is likely to eye a return to management and although no club is yet to express a concrete interest in the manager, he may be a wanted man come summer.
