Ranking some of the best football managers

Written by Kerry Mayodi

Behind the success of each club is a master tactician, a manager, who picks the squad and gives them instructions week in week out on how to challenge for points or a spot in the next round of a competition.

Many great managers have graced the game of football with their outstanding and efficient methods, with names such as Sir Alex Fergurson, Arsene Wenger and Carlo Ancelotti being some familiar names.

Let us take a look at some of the best managers in the world of football right now in terms of domestic football.

Jose Mourinho

The self-proclaimed ‘special one’ has 25 trophies to his name and is undoubtedly one of the most prolific managers that the game ha sever had. No credit should be taken from him for failing to lift trophies at Tottenham, as this just shows how increasingly good and competitive the game of football has become.

Thomas Tuchel

Although he falls short in number of trophies when compared to the likes of Mourinho, Tuchel has the potential to rise up the ranks and go down in history as one of the best managers in football.

Tuchel has proven himself capable of getting very good results from a good team, arriving at Stamford Bridge in January and going on to lead a wary Chelsea side to Champions League glory.

Unai Emery

Unai’s prominence has come mostly from the Europa League. He has done brilliantly against a handful of high-profile opponents, winning 3 Europa Leagues with Sevilla and one with Villarreal. He however struggles with domestic league successes.

Jurgen Klopp

After taking over at Liverpool, Klopp led the Reds to the 2018 Champions League final, but his side lost to Real Madrid. Klopp then went on to win the cup in 2019, beginning his trophy haul. He went has won the Super Cup, Club World Cup, and the 2020 Premier League with Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola

Pep’s teams are known for creativity, heavy pressing and mostly possession. He has enjoyed trophy hauls in the Premier League, including 4 of the last 5 league titles.

Since joining Manchester City, his side has  recorded the most points, wins, and goals of any team in the league’s history.

Despite having an exceptional squad, Pep has stumbled in the Champions League in previous years and is yet to guide City to their first.
