Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has expressed his concern about the increasing frequency of managerial rotation by Premier League sides.

The latest casualty was Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood, who was sacked just six months after being appointed the successor to former boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Former England striker Gary Lineker has already blasted the Tottenham board for going forward with their decision to sack the young manager.

Wenger, who has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996, believes that sacking managers is not a particularly impressive advertisement for English football.


"For me if it's a Tottenham manager or any other manager it's always sad news when somebody loses his job", Wenger told his club's official site.

"The only thing that looks a bit worrying is that the speed of the rotation level in the Premier League gets quicker and quicker.

"That's not a very good sign for the Premier League."

Speaking about the issues related to technical stability, which a manager is supposed to provide, the 64-year-old added: "At the moment people think a lot about that.

"So we accept in our job as well that if directors are not happy, or owners are not happy with us, that we can lose the job."
