Shortest managerial reigns in club football

InfoGraphic_ShortestManagerialReignsFootball

Blackburn Rovers manager Michael Appleton has just been sacked, as he failed to inspire his team to wins this season. The club are 18th in the Championship, just 4 points above the relegation zone.  Appleton lasted just 67 days at Blackburn.

Chelsea‘s manager Rafael Benitez too is all set to leave as well at the end of this season.

The span of the first manager would definitely be a shock for many, and possibly, it could be held intact forever.
