Continuity at teams they lead from the bench is one of the prerequisites for achieving long-term results. Some say, others implement it.
Spain is the country with the fewest changes to the technical bench in the first half of the season 2013-2014. Only three clubs have remained without their coaches after they began the current campaign: Djukic (Valencia), Mendilibar (Osasuna) and Pepe Mel (Betis Sevilla).
For the most powerful leagues in the continent, La Liga exceeded Bundesliga, that changed four tacticians so far – Fink (Hamburg), Slomka (Hannover), Wiesinger and Reutershahn (Nurnberg) and Labbadia (Stuttgart).
In Ligue 1 were replaced five coaches, including the most important name, that of Jean Fernandez from Montpellier, who chose to leave on his own.
In the past an example, the Premier League did not show much understanding for managers: six of those who started the season are no longer found on the technical bench at the moment – Villas-Boas (Tottenham) Martin Jol (Fulham) Steve Clarke (WBA), Malky Mackay (Cardiff), Paolo Di Canio (Sunderland) and Ian Holloway (Crystal Palace).
Italy is champion of dismissal in this TOP 5: not less than 8 coaches were dismissed, the most resounding being the name of Massimiliano Allegri, after AC Milan fired him earlier this week. Still appear changes this season, be they even temporary.
