The international football management merry-go-round

It is all change once again in the precarious world of international football management. Jump before you are pushed seems to be the motto of the Germany 2006 coaches. Follow the link below to see who is out of a job.

The international football management merry-go-round continued


Jurgen Klinsmann - Germany
A good decision by Klinsmann. He was sensible to bow out as a national hero rather than take on more difficult challenges without home advantage.

Marcello Lippi - Italy
Another sensible decision. How do you top winning the World Cup?

Sven Goran Eriksson - England

Leo Beenhakker - Trinidad and Tobago
The wily T&T boss has got a new job...

Jose Pekerman - Argentina
Almost single-handedly knocked Argentina out of the World Cup.

Guus Hiddink - Australia
Already had another job lined up.

Alexandre Guimaraes - Costa Rica
Apparently received a nasty home-coming and feared for his safety. Not much more he could have done with those players.

Henri Michel - Ivory Coast
Going to pick up his pension in Qatar.

Zico - Brazil
The great man is on the prowl for a job in Europe

Ricardo La Volpe - Mexico
The scary man also wants a post in Europe.

Pawel Janas - Poland
Resigned before he was sacked after a poor showing.

Ilija  Petkovic - Serbia and Montenegro
Quit because of concerns that the split between Serbia and Montenegro has led to a lack of unity (I think that was the idea, Ilija!).

Dick Advocaat - South Korea
Going to coach Zenit St Petersburg.


Bruce Arena - USA, Carlos Alberto Parreira - Brazil

Come back tomorrow for a guide to all the new coaches.
