In Pictures: From Gazza to Brian Clough - football's shortest managerial reigns

Henning Berg (Blackburn) 10 games, 57 days, 2012
After replacing Steve Kean (a manager many said had been given too much time) Berg managed to win just one game of his 10 in charge.
Gian Piero Gasperini (Inter Milan) 5 games 2010
In charge for three months and three league games, Gasperini was fired after a slow start to the season, joining the ever growing list of departees from Inter Milan.
Jock Stein - (Leeds) 44 days 1978
A glittering managerial career: the first British manager to win the European Cup, nine league championships with Celtic, Guided Scotland to two World Cups. Yet still room for a blip. Stein joined Leeds in 1978 after 13 successful years at Celtic. Lasted only 44 days before resigning to become Scotland manager.

Henning Berg has been sacked as the manager of Blackburn Rovers - just 57 days after taking the reigns at Ewood Park.

The owners of football clubs are notoriously trigger-happy, and incredibly, many among this collection of managers lasted less time than Berg.
