EPL managers who got the boot soon after winning major silverware

A brutal sacking

Claudio Ranieri:

It was one of the most brutal sackings in the history of the English Premier League since its inception in the 1990s. After managing Leicester City to a title win in 2015-16, he was given the boot in the next season, that too when 13 games were remaining in the season. Picture: Twitter/ DonRanieri


An unfathomable exit

Roberto Di Matteo:

It was a little baffling that his stay as manager was only eight months long in the year 2012. This stay was so short despite FA Cup and Champions League Trophy wins. His sacking was severely criticised. After all, how many managers win two big trophies in less than a year? Picture: Twitter/ Chelsea


The curse of one year

Carlo Ancelotti:

He saw a lot in a one-year cycle with Chelsea. He won the English Premier League title with Chelsea in May 2010 but found himself on the way out in May 2011. It was by any proportion, a major sacking and had several tongues wagging at the time of the exit. Picture: Twitter/ Carlo Ancelotti


A one-year long drama

Roberto Mancini:

He won the English Premier League title as manager with Manchester City in May 2012 but in May 2013, he was given the marching orders. It highlighted the growing impatience of the powers to be as past performances were given less importance and people only talked about living in the present day. Picture: Twitter/ Roberto Mancini


An exit beyond imagination

Jose Mourinho:

This has to be the most talked about sacking in recent times in the English Premier League or for that matter any major football league. What was sensational was that it happened within a few months. He won the title with Chelsea in May 2015 and got the boot as manager in December 2015. Picture: Twitter/ MourinhoNews
