Ole Gunnar Solskjær Ranks Second In Best Win Record For Managers This Season

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has the second best win percentage for any manager in Europe's top five leagues across all competitions.

The 46-year-old Norwegian became Manchester United's caretaker manager in December, following on from the sacking of José Mourinho.

Since then, the former Red Devils forward has turned the Premier League side's season around and holds an impressive 82.35 per cent win ratio.

The United boss has been in charge of 17 matches so far, picking up an impressive 14 wins, two draws and one loss.

United's only loss under Solskjær's reign came last month after Paris Saint-Germain picked up a 2-0 win at Old Trafford, but his side bounced back on Wednesday night by securing a 3-1 win at the Parc des Princes in the second leg of their Champions League clash.

The only manager holding a better record is Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, who has an 82.6 per cent win ratio this season.

While both Solskjær and Guardiola are neck and neck in the statistic, there is a little bit of breathing room with other managers on the list.

Juventus' Massimiliano Allegri is in third place with 80.55 per cent and PSG's Thomas Tuchel has locked down fourth with 80.48 per cent, while Bayern Munich's Niko Kovač came fifth with 71.42 per cent and Barcelona's Ernesto Valverde finished sixth with 66.6 per cent.

You can find the rest of the managers on the list below.

  • Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur): 65.9 per cent
  • Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea): 65.2 per cent
  • Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool): 63 per cent
  • Lucien Favre (Borussia Dortmund): 62.8 per cent
  • Carlo Ancelotti (Napoli): 61 per cent
  • Diego Simeone (Atlético Madrid): 60.25 per cent
