Blatter is believed to be unhappy with the way Juande Ramos recently left Sevilla to join Tottenham and Ronald Koeman's sudden departure from Ajax to Valencia.

Blatter believes managers should be subject to the same restrictions that govern the movement of players, who can only switch clubs in January and during the summer.

"We will try to extend the rule that is valid for players to coaches," he said in the Daily Telegraph.

League Managers Association chief executive John Barnwell agrees with the idea in principle, saying on Sky Sports News: "We think there should be some legislation in there which restricts managers resigning from a football club and joining another football club immediately."

However, Barnwell believes any legislation should apply only to managers and not to the clubs who employ them.

He said: "Can you imagine what would happen if clubs were really struggling and wanted to get rid of their manager and couldn't? .... Then appoint someone from your own system and suspend the coach like you would have done to an underperforming player
"I think you'd be inundated with managers coming and going. I don't see that working at all.

"I think it would be total chaos."
I agree with Blatter... I've been thinking about it for quite some time now... That way managers could be protected at least for some period . And by sacking a manger at your club you won't immediatelly infuence on other clubs ( aka Tottenham - Sevilla issue) ... It would be interesting
... Especially if window begins and closes at summer period maybe
