Steve McClaren will be the next boss to bite the bullet, say voters

The Premier League’s managerial merry go-round has started early this year with both Brendan Rodgers and Dick Advocaat falling on their proverbial swords over the course of the weekend.

But have their respective departures set the tone for the days and weeks ahead?

There are perhaps a few other gaffers looking over their shoulders and it’s Newcastle manager Steve McClaren who should be most concerned, according to Ladbrokes News voters.

We posed the question ‘which Premier League boss will be the next to go?’ earlier on and it’s the Toon supremo who topped our latest poll.

McClaren collected 42 per cent of the vote after overseeing a dreadful run that’s seen his side fall to the bottom of the table.


Under-fire Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho came in second-place as speculation intensifies regarding his future at Stamford Bridge.

A run of four defeats in the Blues’ opening eight league games has prompted rumours of serious dressing-room unrest as the champions continue to struggle.

Aston Villa’s Tim Sherwood was next in the firing line. His side currently sit in the bottom three and there are few signs of improvement from last season’s relegation dogfight.

Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger needn’t worry though. While it’s tough at the top the majority of you feel that both men are safe for now.

Instead, it’s former England boss McClaren who’s deemed most likely to be the next high-profile casualty.

Ladbrokes go 5/4 that the voters are vindicated and he becomes the next Premier League manager to leave his post.
