Perhaps one of the most successful managers in the modern era of football, Zinédine Zidane has been out of work since he left Real Madrid in 2021.

 

The Frenchman was promoted to the first team following his success with the Real Madrid B youth team in the lower division of Spanish football.

 

Despite being his first professional managerial job, Zidane successfully won the UEFA Champions League three times in a row as Real Madrid became the first team to win the trophy in three successive seasons since it was rebranded. He also won the La Liga, Super Cup, and Club World Cup.

 

A lot of rumours have been circulating regarding the future of the Frenchman manager, but he remains out of work.

Following a troubled season with Tottenham Hotspur, especially after the team failed to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Conte departed Tottenham Hotspur.

Perhaps one of the most unexpected sackings in world football, Julian Nagelsmann was shown the exit door at Bayern Munich.

 

The former RB Leipzig boss left the Allianz Arena despite having a fine run in the Champions League by advancing to the quarter-finals. His only struggle was in the league, even though he was within the top two places on the league table.

 

But Bayern Munich’s top hierarchy appeared not to be satisfied with the results their young manager was having and had him replaced by Thomas Tuchel. He is currently linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Graham Potter was part of the project at Brighton and was outstanding with the Seagulls. His performance drew the interest of Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly, and he was eventually handed the top job at Stamford Bridge.

 

The English manager’s reign at the club, however, did not turn out as expected, as Chelsea struggled in domestic competitions, especially in the Premier League.

After embarrassing results with the German Men’s Football National Team at the World Cup and in friendlies, he was released from the top job.

 

Hansi Flick is one of the most successful German football managers who have enjoyed a successful career with Bayern Munich, winning the Bundesliga, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

 

13. Rudi Garcia

 

After replacing Luciano Spalletti at Napoli, he was sacked by the club following a series of poor results with the team.
