10 Longest-Serving Managers In The EPL

As managers face increasing pressure to deliver immediate success, many fall by the wayside and three Premier League clubs have already made changes this season. Among those who remain, here are the 10 longest-serving coaches currently plying their trade in England's top flight.

Click through the gallery above for images of the 10 longest-serving managers currently coaching in the Premier League, according to Transfermarkt.

The days of managers spending decades at a single club, as was the case with Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, have seemingly passed us by and not a single current Premier League boss has been in his current job for more than 10 years. 

AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, who masterminded the club's rise from League One to the Premier League, is currently the longest-serving boss in the league with the 42-year-old having been in charge of the Cherries for seven years, one month and 16 days.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche, who similalry to Howe worked his way up from the lower leagues to England's top flight, is the second-longest-serving current manager in the league after being in charge of the club for seven years and 31 days.

Liverpool's UEFA Champions League winning manager Jurgen Klopp rounds out the top three. The German tactician took over the Merseyside club following Brendan Rodgers' sacking in 2015 and has now been at the helm for four years, one month and 22 days. 

Sheffield United's Chris Wilder and Manchester City's two-time Premier League winning coach Pep Guardiola complete the top five for longest-serving managers, with both coaches having been at their respective clubs for more than three years each.
