Loyalty is not a word that is much associated with football nowadays, and that is never better demonstrated than in the case of the men in the dugout. For a manager to enjoy more than a mere season at the helm of a club in English football is something of an achievement today, and many have tenure’s in charge which can be measured in weeks rather than months.

That lack of loyalty and limited job security of a modern football manager is never better demonstrated than by looking at the ten current managers of English football league clubs who have been in their jobs the longest. Impressive as being amongst the ten longest serving gaffers sounds after all, many of these bosses are still yet to rack up a mere four years in the job.
