It doesn't take a genius to work out why Slaven Bilic, Tony Pulis or Ronald Koeman have been sacked this season. Simply results weren't good enough. But that's not the case for Carlo Ancelotti, he was sacked for a whole other reason.
The managerial merry-go-round does spin faster and faster every season. English football has seen 14 men lose their jobs already this season and Tony Pulis' sacking last week took the Premier League's number to five.
This morning Vincenzo Montella became the latest high profile boss to lose his job with AC Milan deciding the draw against Torino at the weekend wasn't enough to stop them replacing him with Gennaro Gattuso.

Earlier this season the highest profile sacking of the lot came when Bayern Munich decided to replace Carlo Ancelotti after the Bundesliga champions had a bit of a rocky start and lost 3-0 in the Champions League to PSG.
But speaking to German newspaper Bild the club's president Uli Hoeness revealed that it wasn't even Ancelotti's fault he was sacked, saying:
"Ancelotti's assistants did not fit in at this club. With Carlo it wasn't a problem, everything was OK with him, but every day there was a fight between the physios, the doctors and Ancelotti's fitness coaches.
"In an environment like that, you can't work."

Whilst the backroom staff constantly having arguments with each other isn't exactly a good thing it seems ridiculous for that to be the reason to sack your manager, especially as Bayern weren't that far off the leaders when Ancelotti was dismissed.
It does seem to have worked though with Jupp Heynckes coming out of retirement and winning nine of his 10 games in charge of Bayern and taking them to top of the Bundesliga.

There were rumours that the former Real Madrid manager had lost the dressing room, with reportedly five senior members of the squad complaining about his training.
Arjen Robben was vocal in his criticism saying, "There's better training at my son's youth team [than under Ancelotti]."
Since being sacked Ancelotti has been linked with a number of high profile positions but is taking a break from football.
