Remember these shortest managerial reigns in football?Last updated on Nov 03, 2019, 04:26 pm
Football is the most-watched sport and is appreciated globally.
Be it international or club football, it is played with the utmost intensity and the job of the managers is equally difficult.
On some occasions, the managerial jobs become so difficult that many managers don't last long at a club.
On the same note, we take a look at the shortest managerial reigns.
Billy McKinlay (8 days)
Billy McKinlay's eight-day wonder at Watford
We start the list with the Scottish manager Billy McKinlay, who had a wonderful eight-day reign at English club Watford.
Having been initially appointed as the assistant to Oscar Garcia, he was promoted to a full-time role after the latter stepped down.
Interestingly, he registered a win and a draw, before surprisingly being sacked for Slavisa Jokanovic, who got them promoted.
Kevin Cullis (7 days)
Kevin Cullis' embarrassing seven-day reign at Swansea City
Next comes Englishman in the form of Kevin Cullis, who was appointed Swansea City's manager in February 1996.
While he lost the opening game in charge, to Swindon Town, 0-1, his next game against Blackpool saw him managing until half-time, before being boycotted by the team during the team meeting.
He resigned shortly afterward as his stint came to an end within seven days.
Dave Bassett (4 days)
Dave Bassett trail-like four-day reign with Crystal Palace
Now, this one is interesting. Dave Bassett never really signed a proper managerial contract for Crystal Palace in 1984.
While he still managed the team for four days, he was unhappy with his stint and did not find the job up to his rank.
Just after four days, he made a u-turn and returned back to Wimbledon AFC.
Marcelo Bielsa (2 days)
Marcelo Bielsa quits within 2 days over fake promises
Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa was happy following his appointment for Lazio in Serie A, in 2016.
However, just a couple of days into his job, he resigned from his post without even managing a game, as he was unhappy with the club, who did not wish to fulfill his transfer promises.
Lazio even tried to sue him for €50 million over his pre-mature resignation.
Leroy Rosenior (10 minutes)
Leroy Rosenior 10-minute chaos at Torquay
Now, this one is for the ages.
Leroy Rosenior returned to Torquay in 2007 for his second managerial stint at the cub.
As he signed his papers, the club was eventually sold to a local consortium, who said that they would like to have their own man in charge, as Rosenior's appointment was ended within 10 minutes.
This record might never get broken.
