The Coaching Carousel for 2016/2017

The coaching carousel is sometimes hard to keep track of. Here's a breakdown of who, for one reason or another, left their managerial role during or in the aftermath of the 2016-2017 season.

Claudio Ranieri, Sam Allardyce, Luis Enrique, David Moyes

Managing is a precarious profession to be involved in, to be the one held most accountable for results in what can be a cutthroat industry.

Whilst a board can't sack 20 players, they can easily get rid of the manager to try and reinvigorate a flagging side.

This season has seen the regular rotation of managers throughout the top leagues of Europe, swapping jobs and in the case of Genoa's Ivan Juric, re-claiming the job he was sacked from just over a month previous!

Palermo were the most profligate, employing no less than five managers during their abysmal run to finishing 19th in the league and getting relegating from Serie A.

Ligue 1 was the most stable top European league for managers, there were only eight jobs put on the market all season in the top French division.
