Arsenal legend Ian Wright predicted on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning (December 5) that Newcastle United boss Steve McClaren will be the next Premier League manager to lose his job.
There have been three managerial changes in the Premier League since the start of the season, and former Arsenal striker Wright believes that McClaren will be the fourth.
“I don't like saying, but Steve McClaren is really under real pressure at the moment,” said Wright on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning (December 5) when asked to predict the next Premier League manager to lose his job.
“I think he is really under pressure. When you look at the results at Newcastle at the moment, unfortunately it's not standing up, is it? It's not happening for him.”
Newcastle are in the Premier League relegation zone and there are no signs that things will improve.
The Magpies have been playing poorly throughout the season, and the players really do need to step up.
McClaren is a very good coach and a good manager, but things are not going his way at Newcastle at the moment.
The Premier League club should still persevere with the former Derby County boss, though, as he does have the quality to turn things around.
