This is Moneyball: Would you be a football manager? The profession where getting the sack is the norm - just how fair is it…
The football managerial sack race is well and truly on. Claude Puel has left Leicester, Claudio Ranieri departed Fulham – while long-standing Rochdale boss Keith Hill has been axed. Lee Boyce and co-host Georgie Frost talk about the bizarre world of football management - there aren't many jobs you go into knowing you're going to get sacked, probably within three years. We all think we'd do the job well – probably from days wasted playing computer game Football Manager – but is that the reality? We also reveal what happens with compensation, with specialist employment lawyer Victoria Mitchell from Farleys lifting the lid. Elsewhere, we chat through the multi-million pound Manchester City/Puma deal with sports sponsorship expert Nigel Currie. Wrestling on your honeymoon? We talk to Wrestling Travel founder Lee McAteer who set up a holiday business specialising in the billion-dollar industry. Paypal offers sports teams an easier payment method, is the World Rugby League idea all about the money – and should Tottenham really sell Harry Kane?
