Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger believes that David Moyes' sacking does not bode well for the managerial situation in the Premier League which has seen more than 11 posts change hands over the course of a year.

Moyes, who was appointed following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in the beginning of this season, was unceremoniously shown the door after Manchester United's 2-0 defeat at the hands of his former club Everton. Ryan Giggs has taken over for the last four games as he looks to finish United's season on a high.

The sacking of Andre Villas-Boas from Tottenham has been another such high profile sacking which has been brought about this season.

Wenger believes that such instances will degrade the quality of managers coming to the Premier League, which will affect English football. The Frenchman insists that for the situation to get better, they have to give managers time, failing which it will put the game under disrepute.

"I'm sad that he [Moyes] wasn't given time and I wish him well. I think it's just part of what the modern game is now. There is no time available for people to do their job and that is a big threat for our game," Wenger told

"What I mean by that is that if you want quality people in any job, you need to give them time to develop and to become good, or people with the quality will not come into our job anymore.

"The average [job life] expectancy of an English professional club [manager] at the moment is 11 months, and that is quite unstable. Every guy who is married, has a family, will have a big hesitancy before he goes into that game.

"That means the quality of the coaching and the quality of the managing is under threat, because it will not attract quality people anymore.

"It's the first time since I have been in England that [10 Premier League managers have lost their job in one season], and the trend is that rotation will become quicker and quicker.

"You know, if you get to a point where you sack your manager with every defeat, the guy who comes in will lose games as well. So that trend will become quicker and quicker. We are living in a society now where it is every time quick, the quick intelligence is dominating the slow intelligence. That means every time after the game it is quick sanction, quick judgment, and there is no distance anymore with the event," he concluded.
