Premier League clubs spent £99 million changing managers last season, new figures revealed to the BBC confirm.

The cost, incurred through overlapping remuneration contracts, legal fees and compensation, has risen again, prompting the League Managers’ Association (LMA) to urge clubs to give their managers ‘enough time to prove themselves’.

“…when results take a downturn that is when the club should support its manager even more, not jump for the quick fix," Richard Bevan, LMA chief executive told the BBC.”

The LMA’s figures suggest more than 100 coaches were sacked in 2010, with increasing pressure from fans likely to see this number grow in coming years.
