Everton manager David Moyes has expressed his concerns at the recent dismissals of Sam Allardyce and Chris Hughton, and claimed that no Premier League manager is safe in the current climate.
The Scot, like many of his counterparts, was left surprised at the sacking of Allardyce, who was kicked out of Blackburn this week, but believes such decisions are characteristic of the modern game.
"Not for a minute did I think Sam was in a position where he was close to the club not wanting his services any more," Moyes said, according to the Daily Mirror.
"I think he has done a terrific job for them and I really didn't see that coming at all.
"But new owners coming in always means you could be in jeopardy, whoever the manager is.
"I think it is one of these things we can't do anything about. A lot of clubs are looking for investment and we are one of them.
"You could get an owner in who right away wants to change it around, and that is what has happened with Sam.
"If you want investment the people that come in have to be allowed to do what they want to do.
"I am not saying that is right but we are all looking for people to come and help us.
"If new owners come in, who knows what they might do - to me or whoever else?"The Toffees manager added that even he wasn't safe from the boot, but reaffirmed his faith in the Goodison Park hierarchy.
He added: "I have got a great chairman and a really good board of directors - but that still wouldn't stop them if things don't go well here.
"You have got to win as a manager, you have got to do well."
Moyes' side are currently on a run of seven games without a win, leaving them only two points above the relegation zone.
