Kenny Jackett: 'Recent managerial sackings adds no extra pressure'

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett admits that he is fully aware of the risks of managing a side in the Championship, claiming that it is simply "the nature of the game".

Kenny Jackett has acknowledged that his position at Wolverhampton Wanderers is far from secure, but says recent managerial sackings in the Championship do not make him feel any extra pressure.

The 53-year-old is now the sixth-longest serving boss in the second tier following the departure of Gary Bowyer from Blackburn Rovers last week.

Having seen a number of sides part company with their managers in recent weeks, including five teams directly above and below Wanderers in the table, Jackett insists that he knows full well the dangers of the job.

"I don't think it adds pressure," he told the Express & Star. "The person who sits here is more aware than anyone else, you can see the signs more than anyone else. It is part of it, it's the nature of the game, not just personal to you, it's the way the industry is.

"It's hard to judge or talk about other clubs and every situation is different. You know the risks. You know that [being sacked] is a likelihood or a possibility. You do everything you can to avoid it but it is there. The nature of a head coach or manager job is precarious, it always has been. It's certainly accelerated now.

"You're aware of the territory. You work very hard to stay in a job as long as you possibly can but you understand the insecurities. There is a high turnover and you know when it's coming. It's a tough job, but a great job as well, which you have to appreciate. A lot do lose their jobs but for me its a privileged position being in charge at Wolves."

Jackett recently dismissed suggestions that he could be on his way to Queens Park Rangers, who are still on the lookout for a new head coach, claiming that he is fully "committed" to Wolves.
