The Greatest Managers Of The Premier League
Sir Alex Ferguson
Sir Alex Ferguson is arguably the greatest and most successful managers of all time. He coached Manchester United for 26 years, which went down to be their most successful periods so far. Fittingly, he won the first ever Premier League, the 1992 - 1993 season, with the Red Devils. He went on to absolutely dominate the tournament, winning a total of 13 titles, a record that’s unlikely to be beaten in the near future. His retirement back in 2013 has definitely left a void in the world of English football.
Jose Mourinho, admittedly, isn't having the best run right now. He was recently sacked as the head coach of Manchester United after two and a half years following a rather unimpressive run. But that doesn't take away from the achievements of his past. He is one of the most successful Premier League coaches in terms of statistics and numbers, especially considering his time with Chelsea.
During his first season with them, The Blues won their first Premier League title in 50 years with a whopping 95 points, a good 12 points ahead of the competition. Under Mourinho’s leadership, they went on to win again next season. In his second season back at Stanford Bridge, Chelsea went on to win their third title after a 5-year dry spell. Regardless of his alleged third season syndrome, Mourinho will go down to be the greatest English coaches of all time.
With 476 wins out of 828 matches, Arsenal's most successful and longest-running managers, Arsene Wenger, undoubtedly deserves a place on this list. He coached them to their first ever Premier League win back in the 1997 -1998 season. He went on to win two more league titles, 2001/02, as well as 2003 - 2004.
This season went down in history as being one of Arsenal's most successful runs ever, as they remained unbeaten throughout the season - that’s 49 games without conceding a defeat. So far, they are the only team to achieve this. 14 years with Arsenal, Wenger's genius style of play and unique, novel managerial style will be almost impossible to replace.
