BuzzRanked! Jurgen Klopp to Sir Alex Ferguson - an Introspection at the Premier League's Greatest Managers

Behold the greatest tacticians in British football!

The elite Premier League managers aren't solely defined by their ability to lead their teams to titles or secure high finishes for Champions League qualification. Among the ranks of the greatest coaches in Premier League history are those who have demonstrated exceptional skill at navigating the challenges at the lower end of the table. These managers have adeptly operated with limited resources, defying the odds to ensure their clubs remain in the top flight. Below, we present our compilation of the finest Premier League managers of all time.

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp emerged as the figure destined to become a legend at Liverpool, tasked with securing the elusive Premier League title and bringing an end to the club's prolonged yearning. In the 2019–20 season, Klopp's commanding leadership propelled his team to a remarkable triumph. Furthermore, Klopp is showing his adeptness in orchestrating a squad overhaul, adeptly incorporating fresh talent despite financial constraints.

Arsene Wenger

Upon his arrival at Arsenal, the esteemed Frenchman faced scepticism from many quarters. However, he quickly silenced his critics, establishing himself as a prominent figure in the managerial realm. In 1998, he made history as the first non-British coach to win an English top-flight title. Then, in 2003/04, he replicated his feat by guiding the Gunners' legendary 'Invincibles' to another triumphant title campaign.

Arsene Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups with Arsenal

Roberto Mancini

Thanks to Sergio Aguero's thrilling late winner on the season's last day, the Italian genius orchestrated Manchester City's maiden Premier League success, capping a 44-year quest for league glory in a way that will live on forever in football legend. Mancini was a brilliant manager off the pitch as well; he was instrumental in bringing in Aguero, David Silva, and Yaya Toure, three of the team's most recognisable players.

Jose Mourinho 

Declaring himself to be the "special one," the Portuguese landed in England, and he delivered! At Chelsea, Jose Mourinho fostered a siege mentality and built a team that rarely seemed to concede, let alone lose. Chelsea's fifty-year drought for a Premier League trophy was abruptly interrupted by him, and he went on to win two consecutive titles (before winning a third in his second stint nine years later).

Sir Alex Ferguson 

Irrespective of the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson is among the all-time finest managers in sports history. The fact that Manchester United had serious difficulties in the years after the renowned Glaswegian's retirement is evidence of his enormous influence. It seems unlikely that his 13-title record will ever be exceeded.

Pep Guardiola

The former Barcelona player undoubtedly possesses one of the best managerial brains in history. The tactical wizard has proven that he has the ability to work his magic and improve even the greatest players in the world. Although he has frequently had the means to make large purchases, his aptitude for designing winning equipment is unmatched. 

Antonio Conte

Excellent managers don't always make the correct decisions, and Conte's tenure at Spurs is undoubtedly a black mark on his resume. Nonetheless, in his first season in England in 2016–17, the dynamic coach did lead Chelsea to victory, winning 30 of his 38 games as the London team scored 93 points.

Sir Kenny Dalglish

Before the Premier League era began, "King Kenny" was a legend who won three league titles with Liverpool. But, like the majority of the greats, he proved himself elsewhere. He guided a Blackburn Rovers team that Chris Sutton and Alan Shearer had powered to a Premier League triumph in 1994–1995, defeating the legendary Manchester United.

Some other legendary managers from the home of football would be legends like Rafael Benitez, David Moyes,  Claudio Ranieri, Manuel Pellegrini, and Kevin Keegan.
