In this modern era of football, the football clubs are run by the riches of club owners. The richer the owner, the more ambitious he is in seeking results, leaving the club to change their integral structural, game play and more often the mangers.

The tiger of the den faces the axe. He is the man held responsible for not meeting with the demands of the owners. The owners want profits and a global market, which is only possible if the club is consistently winning. Sometime one bad season or just a few bad games results in the departure of the manager. Clubs have become less stable, debt ridden and over ambitious. The owners want immediate results, enforcing the managers to take bigger steps before a small stride of development. Sadly, this is how the modern football era works.

Still there have been a lot of mangers who have performed well with their respective clubs and earned the support of their owners. We take a look at some of the longest serving football mangers with one club.
