World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763380 Manchester City Manchester+City World

Sacked: Roberto Mancini (3 years)


State of team: Just a year removed from a Barclays Premier League title, Manchester City has shown no patience in the quest for another trophy. After a second place finish in the league, the team sacked Mancini with less than a month remaining in the season. With plenty of talent on the roster and deep pocketbooks of the owners, spending £284,750,000 in transfers in the last 3 years, this is a prime opportunity for a manager to come in and succeed right away.


Potential replacement: Manuel Pellegrini (Malaga), Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763387 AS Roma AS+Roma World

Sacked: Zdenek Zeman (1 year)


State of team: Roma have finished 6th place or below in Serie A for the 3rd year in a row and the 4th time in five years. Barring an Italian Cup final victory, the club will have won no trophies in the last five seasons, and club management wants to bring in a manager that knows how to win.


Potential replacement: Walter Mazarri (Napoli), Roberto Mancini (Manchester City)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763386 Werder Bremen Werder+Bremen World

Sacked: Thomas Schaaf (14 years)


State of team: Werder Bremen, once a mainstay in European competition, recorded its worst season since 1978, staving off relegation by just four points. This led to the sacking of the legendary Schaaf, with whom Bremen won its last Bundesliga title in 2004.


Potential replacement: Roger Schmidt (Red Bull Salzburg) Wolfgang Rolff (interim manager, Co-manager since 2004)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763385 Napoli Napoli World

Current manager: Walter Mazzarri


State of team: The club finished an impressive 2nd place in Serie A behind superstar striker Edinson Cavani and has qualified for the 2013-14 Champions League. Current manager Walter Mazzarri is looking to leverage the success into a big move. Speculation has Mazzarri linked to Serie A rivals Roma and Inter Milan which could lead to a very intriguing coaching vacancy.


Potential replacement: Rafa Benitez (Chelsea), Roberto Mancini (Manchester City.

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763383 Real Madrid Real+Madrid World

Sacked: Jose Mourinho (3 years)


State of team: For a club of Real Madrid's stature, 2nd place is just not good enough. Los Blancos are one of the most talented teams in the world, but this season they finished runner up in La Liga, Copa del Rey, and bowed out in the semifinals of the Champions League 3 years in a row. If you're looking to manage Real Madrid, you better be ready to win right away.


Potential replacement: Carlo Ancelotti (PSG), Rafa Benitez (Chelsea), Michael Laudrup (Swansea City)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763382 Everton Everton World

Current manager: David Moyes


State of team: Moyes will be heading to Manchester to take over Sir Alex Ferguson's position with United, leaving a vacancy at Goodison Park. Everton has a talented club, with stars in Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini, but the new manager will need to convince them to stick around through the transfer window. This is a team that is on the cusp and the right manager may be able to put them in the top 4 conversation.


Potential replacement: Roberto Martinez (Wigan), Neil Lennon (Celtic), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Molde FK)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763381 Blackburn Blackburn World

Sacked: Michael Appleton (3 months)


State of team: The one-time champions of the Premier League were able to escape relegation from the Championship this year and will be looking to right the ship. They have their sights set on a manager that can get the most out of young players.


Potential replacement: Gary Bowyer (caretaker manager), Tim Sherwood (technical coordinator, Tottenham)

World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763379 Chelsea Chelsea World

Sacked manager: Roberto Di Matteo (1 year)


State of team: This is an absolute team on the rise and a good bet to make some noise in the Premier League and European competition next season. Though interim manager Rafa Benitez guided the team to glory and set Chelsea up for a position in next season's Champions League, the club will be looking to bring on a big name that can take this talented team to another level.


Potential replacement: Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid), Manuel Pellegrini (Malaga), Carlo Ancelotti (PSG)

Scott Heavey - Getty Images http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-managerial-openings-OB-G4_20130520183948825_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-managerial-openings-OB-G4_20130520183948825_107_80.JPG
World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31763384 Wigan Wigan World

Current manager: Roberto Martinez


State of team: Wigan became the 1st club to win the FA Cup while being relegated to the Championship. Roberto Martinez has been linked to various jobs across Europe, which may leave an opening for a manager that wants to prove themselves. The incoming manager will have their hands full with a recently relegated side, but better to take over a club with hope of promotion rather than no hopes at all.


Potential replacement: Graeme Jones (Wigan assistant manager), Owen Coyle (Bolton)

Chris Brunskill - Getty Images http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-managerial-openings-OB-G9_20130520184340833_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-managerial-openings-OB-G9_20130520184340833_107_80.JPG
World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31764369 Malaga Malaga World

Current manager: Manuel Pellegrini


State of team: After making the Champions League quarterfinals, Malaga finished 6th place in La Liga, earning a spot in the 2013-14 Europa League. The team has talented pieces and if Pellegrini takes his managerial career elsewhere as rumors have dictated, there will be an excellent opportunity for a manager to come in and mold the team.


Potential replacement: Rafa Benitez (Chelsea), Brian Kidd (Manchester City caretaker manager)

Stuart Franklin/Bongarts - Getty Images http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-Coach-Replacement-LA-G5_20130520161533747_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fsc/img/2013/05/20/052013-SOCCER-Coach-Replacement-LA-G5_20130520161533747_107_80.JPG
World 2018 8 Open manager positions 31764573 Stoke City Stoke+City World

Previous coach: Tony Pulis (7 years)

State of team: Stoke finished 13th in the Premier League this season, but came a little too close for comfort to the relegation zone at times. And things have gotten weird off the field, after a pig's head was found in the locker of Kenwyne Jones. The club could use a stiff hand to come in and straighten things out off the field, and start getting better results on it.

Potential replacements: Mark Hughes, Roberto Di Matteo, Gus Poyet, Rafa Benitez
