Tier Of Football Managers Has Jose Mourinho As The G.O.A.T

Jose Mourinho has been ranked as the greatest manager of all time by a fan, whose controversial tier of managers has gone viral on social media.


Mourinho isn't everyone's favourite person but there's very little doubt that the Roma manager has provided both entertainment, not always the right kind, and success pretty much everywhere he's been.

In fact, since winning the league with Porto in 2003, the only team he's managed without winning a trophy has been Tottenham Hotspur.

Whether that's enough to put Mourinho ahead of the likes of Pep Guardiola, Sir Alex Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti certainly seems debateable.

But not for one fan, who has ranked managers in a tier and put the former Chelsea boss top of the pile, whilst current Champions League holder Ancelotti has been named 'overrated.'

G.O.A.T - Jose Mourinho

Legends - Pep Guardiola, Sir Alex Ferguson

Elite - Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte, Arsene Wenger, Jupp Heynckes, Diego Simeone, Zinedine Zidane

Great - Luis Enrique, Louis van Gaal, Maurizio Sarri, Kenny Dalglish, Rafa Benitez, Unai Emery, Ernesto Valverde

Overrated - Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini, Thomas Tuchel, Max Allegri, Julian Nagelsmann, Mauricio Pochettino

Decent - Manuel Pellegrini, Didier Deschamps, Laurent Blanc, Rudi Garcia, Simone Inzaghi, Luciano Spalletti, Gennaro Gattuso

Trash - Nuno Espirito Santo, Jorge Sampaoli, Niko Kovac.

There's certainly some interesting choices, with Champions League winners Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel both being considered overrated.

World Cup winning manager Didier Deschamps finds himself in 'decent' alongside the likes of Gennaro Gattuso and Rudi Garcia.

They're all below Maurizio Sarri, Unai Emery and Ernesto Valverde, who rank in 'great,' somehow, although elite seems like it's pretty solid, even if you don't like how Diego Simeone lines up his Atletico Madrid side.

Many would have probably named Fergie ahead of Mourinho as the greatest of all time, considering his incredible success with Manchester United and Aberdeen, where he broke up the Celtic and Rangers domination in Scotland.

The Scotsman's powers were so good as a manager that he was even able to see into the future, when it came to how Paul Pogba's career would pan out.
