Frank Lampard And Nine Other Managers Who Are Currently Without a Job


Managers face a lot of war in the dugout. The majority of them get axed off as a result of poor performance.

Different teams are making decisions on whether they should stick with their current managers or not.

Many of those managers who have good credentials and have shown quality tactically haven’t gotten a single job since they were sacked by their previous employers.

Below are the top ten World managers without a job in 2023.

  1.  1. Frank Lampard

The former Chelsea legend had not gotten any managerial appointments since his horrible second tenure as manager of Chelsea, where he had more losses than wins.

However, in recent weeks, he has been linked to various jobs.

  1.  2. Antonio Conte

The manager was relieved of his duty last season while he was the manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Italian manager tried everything possible to make Tottenham Hotspur a world-class club, but they failed to fulfill their promises to the manager.

Conte was sacked after calling out the players and the board of the London club. Since then, the manager has rejected a lot of offers that were put to him by various football clubs. 

However, if there is a need for him to return to a managerial job, Conte has set his sights on managing either AS Roma or Napoli. He is one of the most successful Italian managers in the world.

Conte won league titles with Chelsea, Juventus, and Inter Milan.

  1.  3. Zinedine Zidane 

The Real Madrid legend, who won three Champions Leagues in a row, is currently out of work. During his two short stints as the manager of Real Madrid, Zidane also won two La Liga titles.

The manager had been linked to high-profile jobs like Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

  1.  4. Hansi Flick 

A lot of spectators thought Flick would be the manager to take the Germany national team to the next level after he took over from Joachim Low in 2021. Flick had won different silverware and proved his credentials over the years.

Flick served as Germany’s assistant manager during the 2014 World Cup. He won the Bundesliga twice in a row and a continental treble with Bayern Munich.

However, in the international scene, he failed to help Germany to live up to expectations with an early exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He got sacked after three successive defeats after the World Cup.

  1. 5. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The Norwegian tenure at Manchester United was not as bad as the media portrayed it. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United secured Champions League qualification and also enjoyed a 54.17% win rate.

He also took Manchester United to the Europa League final in the 2020–21 season, where they lost to Villarreal.

Manchester United were on their way to achieving something big, but the inability of the club to sign the targets of the manager became a huge setback.

Under his watch, the club played a free-flowing attacking style, achieving unbeaten 29 Premier League matches between February 2020 and October 2021.

  1.  6. Graham Potter

The tragedy Chelsea fans witnessed under Graham Potter’s reign was hard to forget.

Potter turned Brighton into one of the most exciting teams in the Premier League before he was appointed by Chelsea in September 2022.

His disastrous spell at Chelsea saw him register a win rate of 39%, which was the lowest by any permanent manager in the history of Chelsea.

However, his achievements at Swedish sides Ostersunds FK and Brighton showed how brilliant he is as a manager.

  1. 7. Ruud Van Nistelrooy

The former Manchester United striker did enough to prove himself as a manager. He was in charge of PSV from March 2022.

He won his first match in charge of the team beating Ajax in the Dutch Super Cup and later added the KNVB Cup with the same team beating the same Ajax team.

He left the PSV side with 34 wins from 50 matches, losing only five matches.

  1.  8. Julen Lopetegui

After helping Wolves secure a Premier League finish, many thought Lopetegui was on his way of leading the English team to another challenge in the Premier League.


However, the manager left the club after citing the Wolves financial situation as a major reason.

The former Real Madrid manager revealed he is still living within the city due to his love for the fans.

  1.  9. Joachim Low

He is one of the managers who won the World Cup in their career. Low had not been given an opportunity to return to managerial duty after stepping down in 2021.


Low claimed in an interview that he would be returning soon to managing a club and that he had been linked with a Fenerbahce job.

  1. 10. Igor Tudor

The former Olympic Marseille manager left the club after a series of poor results. He spent just a season at the club. He has been linked with a job at Napoli.
