Arsene Wenger believes the Premier League is suffering due to the amount of managerial casualties this season.
A record nine teams have parted company with their coaches during the 2013/14 campaign and only six managers have been in charge since before the start of the season.
Wenger, who is the longest-serving manager in the England, thinks the unstable environment in the Premier League could prove to be detrimental to the development of younger players.
"It is the first time since I have been in England that so many managers have been changed"
"I believe that technical stability is important," he said. "If you change managers too many times, football will suffer for it.
"The young players will suffer for it because no one will give any chance to [them] if he knows that the next game he loses, he will be out.
"Therefore one of the characteristics of the 2013/14 season in the Premier League is that it is the first time since I have been in England that so many managers have been changed.
"It will be interesting at the start of next season to see who started the Premier League in 2013, and who will start in 2014/15. We might be amazed by how many managers have changed. That is not good for the quality of our game."
