The Eight Managers Who Have Won The Most Trophies In History
Sir Alex Ferguson's incredible trophy haul has him firmly ahead of the competition as the most successful manager in history.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, the legendary former Manchester United boss won a staggering 48 trophies in his illustrious managing career.
Ferguson, 77, started his trophy haul at St Mirren when he lifted the Scottish First Division title in the 1976-77 campaign.
The Scotsman increased his silverware cabinet significantly at Aberdeen and then completed the defining move of his career when he replaced Ron Atkinson at United in 1986.
Behind Ferguson in second place is Mircea Lucescu, who captured an impressive 32 trophies and has managed a whopping 14 teams.
Marca published its findings after Pep Guardiola captured a historic domestic treble with Manchester City last season.
The Spaniard also takes his place on the list with his 27-trophy haul after his success with City, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
Marca says Guardiola would hit Ferguson's record in eight more seasons, including the current campaign, should he keep at his 'current rate of 2.7 titles per season.'
The former Barcelona boss, 48, has previously said that he doesn't want to be "coaching at 60 or 65."
While Guardiola is fourth in the eight-man list, ex-Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has also secured his spot as one of the most decorated managers in history.
The 'Special One,' who has been out of management since he was axed at Old Trafford last season, could continue to add to his current 25 trophies amid speculation linking him to Bayern Munich.
