<b>May 17 - Kenny Dalglish (Liverpool)</b><br/>
Despite winning the Carling Cup and taking Liverpool to the FA Cup final in his first full season in charge since returning to his role as manager at Anfield, Dalglish had his contract terminated. It would seem Liverpool's league form was what caused owners Fenway Sports Group to act, with the club finishing eighth. Dalglish, who took over from Roy Hodgson in January 2011, was allowed to invest heavily in the team, bringing in Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson.
