Three Premier League Managers Who Could Be Fired After Sam Allardyce
Sam Allardyce was sacked by Everton, confirming the rumours of inevitability that have been circulating for weeks.
The 63-year-old met with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri in a meeting that has been slated for days as a crucial discussion about the future of Everton and the direction that the club is to take, after an underwhelming season.
The outcome was expected - Toffees fans have been vocal in their displeasure at how the team was set-up under Allardyce, and it was these issues with his style of play that have ultimately led to his dismissal.
While this move from Moshiri will not shock many, it could be the start of a mass exodus of Premier League managers as owners reportedly ready themselves to pull the trigger.
Here are three more bosses that may find themselves elsewhere by the start of the next campaign:
#1 Claude Puel
Another manager who has accusations of an uninteresting playing style, the Frenchman may have taken charge of his last match at Leicester City.
After a disastrous start to the season under Craig Shakespeare, Puel came in and steadied the ship at the King Power, with star duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy the catalysts of a good first few months under their new manager.
However, early momentum quickly faded for the new manager, and the Foxes only won four Premier League games since beating Huddersfield Town on New Year's Day.
A ninth-placed finish is nothing to be ashamed of, but results since January have just not been good enough, as Puel's style of play changed to mirror something similar to what he put in place when he was manager at Southampton.
Speculation of Puel's future began before the final whistle had even blown at Wembley on the final day, so we can probably expect his future to be decided by the Leicester hierarchy sooner rather than later.
