On Monday, Real Madrid sacked Julen Lopetegui after a poor run of results. The final nail on his coffin was delivered on Sunday in El Clasico when Barcelona hammered Los Blancos 5-1 at Camp Nou. The former Spain Coach managed only 14 matches, winning 6, drew 2 and lost 6 others. Today, as Santiago Bernabeu continue to look for a new Coach, we want to look at six managerial stints in English football history.

6. Micky Adams- 13 Days

In 1997, Swansea City fans were excited to welcome new head Coach Micky Adams after a string of poor performances. The top management believed this was the man to turn things around for them. However, lack of transfer cash and a terrible start to the season made Adams leave the job less than two weeks after.

5. Martin Ling- 9 Days

In July 2009, Cambridge FC secured the services of manager Martin Ling. The fans were excited and the players were enjoying the pre-season. However, nine days later due to disagreement with the board, he resigned. The owners dissolved the board, a new one was put in place and they managed to convince him to retake the job.

4. Billy McKinlay- 8 Days

Watford fans still don’t understand why Billy McKinlay decided to resign eight days after taking over. The new boss started well with a win and a draw but it seems he did not like something at Vicarage Road and he wasn’t ready to wait any longer.
