Three top flight bosses under pressure - originally posted on Soccerlens.com(L-R) Roberto Mancini, Martin O’Neill & Rafa Benitez
Rafael Benitez at Chelsea, Roberto Mancini at Manchester City and Martin O’Neill at Sunderland are all managers under pressure but very different types of pressure.
Rafael Benitez has been under pressure ever since he walked through the door as interim boss at Chelsea. He’s under pressure because the fans get on his back in every game and he’s under pressure because Roman Abramovich has shown that it’s literally a lottery to as and when a manager will be asked to leave the club.
Benitez guided the team to an emphatic 6-1 win over FC Nordsjaelland at Stamford Bridge but it wasn’t enough to help the team through in the Champions League. He’s now under pressure to help Chelsea rediscover their Premier League form because he could be sacked before the end of the season if Chelsea drop out of the top four.
Roberto Mancini will always admit he’s under pressu...
