Nyon - The unstable job security of a football manager has been highlighted in a report by UEFA that says the average top-division European club changes head coach almost once a year.
The European governing body says clubs made an average of 2.7 coaching changes in the three seasons from 2011-13.
Coaches in top-flight Greek clubs lasted an average of four months in that period. Of Europe's top leagues, Spanish teams changed coaches every 11 months and English sides every two years.
UEFA also said in its latest licensing benchmarking report released on Thursday that player wages increased 59 percent from 2007-12 while club revenues grew by 42 percent in the same period.
