Football Managers Who Were Sacked After Trophy Wins
Football management is a highly competitive industry.
Therefore, a manager's job always comes with high and immediate expectations. When their teams don't meet expectations, football managers are typically the first to get sacked.
Let's look at seven managers who were sacked after winning, starting with the most recent.
Leroy Rosenoir, a former West Ham United and Fulham striker, lost his position ten minutes after being hired. It is the shortest tenure of any football manager, and breaking it would need an infamously extraordinary case.

The hiring of Jorg Berger as Arminia Bielefeld's manager would go down as one of the most bizarre appointments ever. Berger was fired owing to the relegation barely five days after being appointed.
