Neil Warnock believes that Jurgen Klopp has been a better Manager in the Premier League than Sir Alex Ferguson. Warnock named his top five Managers in Premier League history, with Ferguson missing the top three.
Currently unemployed Manager, Neil Warnock has released his top five Managers in the Premier League era and has somehow put Sir Alex Ferguson out of the top three.
Warnock, who most notably won the Conference in 1986/87, believes that Ferguson didn't have as much of an impact on football as the three above him did.

5. Jose Mourinho
4. Sir Alex Ferguson
3. Jurgen Klopp
2. Pep Guardiola
1. Arsene Wenger
Ferguson, owner of 13 Premier League Titles, is more than the rest of the top five combined with Ferguson beating out Mourinho (3), Klopp (0), Guardiola (2), and Wenger (3) with a margin of five extra Premier League titles.
Somehow, Warnock tried to argue the reason behind the dubious thought process, saying:
"I just think he was in an era where it was man management, it wasn't all this stuff with the back staff and the back rooms and everything, it was man management - and Alex was probably the best at that."
The man has lost his marbles. Wenger 1st! Sir Alex has to be 1st. Won 13 league titles with so many brilliant teams, wenger prided himself on finishing top 4.

Ferguson, who Managed in the Premier League from it's inception to 2013, won a possible 13 of 21 Premier Leagues, including winning it three times straight on two separate occasions.
In regards to naming Wenger top in is list, Warnock said:
"I might be completely different to anyone else, but I would pick Arsene Wenger as number one, only because he changed the whole outlook on modern football."
Warnock's 'argument' also said that Klopp is deserved of third place due to his potential in the Premier League and his 'use' of youth players even though he's the only Manager on the list without a Premier League Title to his name:
"I think Klopp is just beginning. He will definitely get even better...His outlook and everything that he's done at the club and its future with the kids and all that, I think he's got another ten years coming forwards."
The use of youth players by Klopp puts him ahead of Ferguson who only developed players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and the Class of 92.
hes still not forgiven sir alex for resting players against west ham has he :joy::joy::joy::joy:

Either Warnock is trying to and get people to talk about him since he's been out of a job since his embarrassing relegation job with Cardiff City.
Or, it's that he is still upset about how Sheffield United were 'wronged' by Manchester United resting players against West Ham back in 2007.
