Billy McKinlay and the shortest managerial reigns in football

Spell at Watford over just eight days after his appointment

Click to follow

Billy McKinlay has been replaced as manager of Championship side Watford.

Whilst a managerial change is nothing out of the ordinary, that it comes just eight days after his appointment makes it extraordinary.

Perhaps even more bizarrely, it sees Watford move onto their fourth manager of the season. Giuseppe Sannino and Oscar Garcia already came before McKinlay this season. The latest manager is Slavisa Jokanovic.

Despite the incredibly short reign of the former Scotland international, incredibly it is by no-means the shortest seen in football. Among those collected here, one lasted just 10 minutes!
