When it comes to ruthless owners in football, there aren't too many that are like Chelsea's Roman Abramovich. Since arriving in West London back in 2004, the Russian billionaire has transformed the culture at the club.
The Blues are now one of England's and Europe's dominant forces, winning 5x Premier League titles along with the Champions League and Europa League over the last 15 years among several other pieces of silverware.
No one can argue with the success that they've achieved since he bought the club but it's the way that its happened that really grabs headlines. He sacks managers for underperforming like any other owner would but he's also done it pretty much straight after they've won trophies, as the likes of Rafa Benitez, Roberto Di Matteo and most recently Antonio Conte have found out.
The latter made headlines this week by winning his court case with the Blues which goes back to his sacking almost twelve months ago. The Italian lost his job despite guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title and FA Cup in his two seasons in charge, ultimately being replaced by Maurizio Sarri who could well find himself at the job centre very soon.
Roman Abramovich was ordered to pay Conte a massive £9m in compensation after sacking him last year, a saga that seems to have dragged on forever. The disagreement over his settlement led to it being taken to an arbitration tribunal and with it ruling in the former Blues boss' favour, it now means that Abramovich has had to fork out a massive £93m in compensation to former managers since taking over.
Below, we've taken a look at some of those who've had to face the wrath of the Russian over the years. No manager wants to lose their job but we're sure the compensation has helped out slightly...
