Premier League Managers – Past 5 Years (Part 1)

Every season, the Barclays Premier League sees a multitude of managers come and go. Already this season, we have seen three high-profile Premier League managers (Dick Advocaat – Sunderland, Brendan Rodgers – Liverpool, Tim Sherwood – Aston Villa) part ways with their respective clubs, and it looks like there may be more casualties, with Steve McLaren’s Newcastle side struggling, and Jose Mourinho leading Chelsea to their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
