Top 10 Best Soccer Managers


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Fatih Terim

He has his signature on most of the successes in Turkish football history. The UEFA Cup triumph with Galatasaray and semi final with Turkey in EURO 2008 are few of his achievements.

More than just a manager. A father, a marshall, an emperor.

Best motivator in the modern football, more than a manager. He is like a leader...

What a amazing guy!

22Jupp Heynckes

Won the treble. Enough said

23Jurgen Klopp

Wouldn't shake Tony Pulis' hand, what an idiot doesn't deserve to be on this list.
He also celebrated a 2-2 draw with West Brom like they won the league.

Excellent Manager, transformed Dortmund from an average mid-table side in the Bundesliga to Consecutive title winners and Champions League finalists. Wish him all the best at LFC.

24Brendan Rodgers

This guy deserves to be at the top 10

37J├╝rgen Klopp

One of the best managers I've seen in the last few years, he transformed Dortmund from a mid-table side in the Bundesliga to winning consecutive titles and reaching the final of the Champions League. Now at Liverpool he has smashed favourites Manchester City 4-1 (at the Etihad) and hammered Southampton 6-1 (playing away as well) in the Capital One Cup. Known for 'Gegenpressing', a type of fast paced, high pressing football which is designed to push opponents into a smaller playing area, and hit them on the break.

Best German manager of the present day
