Contract Talks - How Long Have Managers Got Remaining On Their Current Deals?
In an age of instant gratification it's not often that a football manager sees out the duration of his contract. The majority of gaffers are sacked, others resign, some move on, while only a miniscule amount depart as a result of their deal at that respective club coming to an end.
When a manager signs a contract to take control of the reigns of a team, it's usually with a view to the long term. Any club making a new managerial appointment thinks they've found the right man, who make positive changes and subsequently spark a successful run, which in turn often results in a new deal.
However, such are the demands of fans, owners and chairmen that most managers these days depart before their contract is up; more often than not with a handsome payoff due to the questionable decision making of those running the clubs.
Below are details of the durations that the current crop of Premier League Managers have remaining on their contracts. As time runs out, some clubs may act to extend the terms of the existing incumbent, whilst others may seek to take advantage of the fact that they can part ways without the need for sizeable compensation.
