There is no doubt that a football club's manager's job is volatile and is pretty result-oriented in modern day football.

Managers of all clubs are under some kind of pressure throughout their tenure with their teams. There is also pretty less job security in this profession.

Since the Premier League started in 1992, there have been over 400 managers in the league till date.

Many of these managers are sacked pretty early into their agreed, contracted tenure with their respective clubs. The clauses in their contracts often lead them to earn big amounts of money from their sacking in mid-tenure.
