The Premier League is the most exciting football league in the world. Unlike the Serie A, La Liga, and the Bundesliga, the English top flight boasts several teams who are capable of winning the league title.
Below we have listed some of the best managers in the Premier League history.
Sir Alex Ferguson
Sir Alex Ferguson arrived at Manchester United in 1986 with little fanfare. However, within a few years, he transformed the Red Devils into a formidable force in England. The Scot won all the trophies at Old Trafford and etched his name as one of the greatest managers of all time.
Winning the Premier League is difficult but winning the league crown 13 times looks unbelievable. Sir Alex achieved this impossible feat through his football genius. The Red Devils considered the EPL title as their birthright during the reign of the Scot. He retired from management at the end of the 2012-13 season, managing to win the league crown in his last campaign too.
Pep Guardiola is undoubtedly one of the best managers in Premier League history. He is very demanding of his players & staff and leaves no stone unturned to win.
After conquering Spain and Germany, the Spanish boss came to England to become the manager at Manchester City. And within a short time, he changed the fortunes of the club. He won back-to-back Premier League titles before registering another in 2021 to make three titles in four years.
Jose Mourinho is not a universally likable figure, but there is no doubt that he is a born winner. He has won plenty of trophies at most of the clubs he managed, including Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Manchester United.
Mourinho called himself the Special One when he first arrived at Chelsea in 2004. And he didn’t just make statements only, rather he went on to prove himself a special manager very soon.
Under the Portuguese boss, the Blues landed two back-to-back Premier League titles at a time when the league was completely dominated by Sir Alex Ferguson’s United.
He returned to Stamford Bridge in 2013 and managed to win another league crown with the Londoners.
Arsene Wenger remained at the helm of affairs at Arsenal for 22 years which is a huge achievement in itself. He didn’t win as many trophies as his rival Sir Alex Ferguson, but he enjoyed a very good record and mostly kept the Gunners near the top of the table.
He also has the distinction of leading the Gunners to an undefeated domestic league season. Since then, many teams have tried to match the Invincibles record but no one has managed it yet.
He also won three Premier League titles and bagged seven FA Cups as well.
Liverpool came close to winning the league title many times, only to miss out on the coveted prize in the end. And that jinx was finally broken in 2020 by Jurgen Klopp who led his side to title victory by an incredible 18 points margin.
The Reds had put an almighty effort the previous season, but City had ultimately prevailed by a single point.
