Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore believes the managerial merry-go-round at the top of the table will benefit the competition.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will retire this summer to be replaced by Everton's David Moyes, while Manchester City have sacked Roberto Mancini and Rafa Benitez's interim stint at Chelsea is due to end.

Scudamore says that although the league itself is built on stability around rules and regulations, the uncertainty around how each side will fare with a new boss bodes well for the top-flight as a spectacle.

"We have a very interesting set-up here, we like to do everything with certainty in terms of the rules, in terms of broadcast contracts, in terms of the way the league is run," Scudamore told Sky Sports News.

"But, of course, our trade in terms of what drives interest is uncertainty so anything that makes the league less certain next year is good for us.

"Managerial change of this nature is good as it creates uncertainty as it perhaps just slightly changes the odds or natural order of how things might turn out.

"It is good for the Premier League to spread the trophies around, it is good for the Premier League that Swansea secured the Capital One Cup.

"It is good for the Premier League that Wigan secured the FA Cup - it is just good that we spread the silverware.

"If the title changed hands every year and we rotated through five clubs that would be good."
