The Top 50 Managers In World Football Right Now Have Been Named And Ranked

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been named the best manager in world football right now ahead of Premier League rivals Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.

The 50-year-old Spaniard comfortably captured the Premier League title last season, with City finishing 12 points ahead of crosstown rivals Manchester United.


City also secured a record-tying eighth League Cup, but they were knocked out of the FA Cup semi-finals at the hands of Tuchel’s Chelsea.


Guardiola, who is widely considered one of the best managers of all time, also led City to their first Champions League final.

However, the defending Premier League champions suffered a 1-0 defeat to Champions League holders Chelsea in Porto.

FourFourTwo crowned Guardiola the best head coach in the world in a star-studded list, featuring both club and international managers.

The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona boss was praised for his achievements and how he is “still number one,” “still innovating” and “still finding ways to twist other elite coaches into submission.”

Tuchel finished runner-up to Guardiola on this occasion, while Liverpool manager Klopp took home the No 3 spot on the podium.


Italy manager Roberto Mancini ranked at No 6 after leading his men to their Euro 2020 triumph back in the summer, with England boss Gareth Southgate finishing ninth.
