SIX Premier League Managers To Leave!

Six managers could be in charge of their clubs for the last time.

Sam Allardyce is on thin ice after West Ham co-owner David Sullivan said he had “tears in his eyes” watching some of his team’s football this season.

Ryan Giggs will see his short run at Old Trafford end after United confirmed they are after Dutchman Louis van Gaal.

Fans have been chanting for the manager’s head, and owner Mike Ashley must decide whether he will entrust Alan Pardew with strengthening the side this summer or bring in a new man. The latter would be the supporters’ choice.

Tim Sherwood is the best manager Spurs have ever had (on stats), though chairman Daniel Levy seems certain to bring in his 11th manager in 14 years with Ajax’s Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino of Southampton the favorites.

Making Sunday the final day at St Mary's for the Southjampton boss a possibility.

Pepe Mel seems certain to return to Spain after winning just three league games since January with West Bromwich. Mel’s 18-month contract has a release clause allowing him to leave this summer and his departure may be confirmed at next week’s meeting with chairman Jeremy Peace.


West Ham manager Sam Allardyce insists he has received no indication from the club's owners that his job is under threat.
Allardyce rang co-chairman David Sullivan on Thursday after reports emerged suggesting he faced the sack after the team's final game of the season at Manchester City on Sunday.

Hammers fans have regularly vented their frustration over the club's style of football under Allardyce and Sullivan apologised for the campaign at the club's end-of-season awards dinner on Tuesday night.

Allardyce is due to meet Sullivan next week but the Hammers boss does not believe his position will be on the agenda.

"I rang him up and spoke to him about what's been planted around and under those circumstances we just talked about getting together and having our meeting next week," Allardyce said.

"The only thing I can say is I spoke to David Sullivan yesterday about us arranging our usual end-of-the-season meeting to go through pre-season and go through budgets and what will happen next season.

"I had no indication that my position is under threat. That's all I know, he's the boss and that's the bottom line for me."

Allardyce added: "People in the game have to write speculation because they have to sell newspapers.

"Whether that speculation becomes a reality we don't know but I will find out next week if it is."

West Ham are 12th in the Barclays Premier League table and have secured their top-flight status for a second consecutive season.
