Football Managers Ranked From 'GOAT' To 'Good'

Football Managers Ranked From 'GOAT' To 'Good'

A fan has ranked a number of the best football managers in history into a tiermaker - ranking them from 'GOAT' to 'Good'.

At the very top of the tree is two absolute legends in Sir Alex Ferguson and Rinus Michels, who completely changed the game with their management style and longevity.

Ferguson won a total of 38 trophies during his glittering 26-year period in charge of Manchester United and was master of rebuilding title-winning sides.

Michels, meanwhile, is deemed to be the father of "total football" and won the European Cup with Barcelona as well as the European Championship as Netherlands boss.

'God tier' features another highly influential Dutchman in Johan Cruyff and his prodigy Pep Guardiola, as well as the Catalan's rival Jose Mourinho - who has won league titles in four different countries and won the Champions League twice.
