Full List Of France Football 50 Greatest Managers Ever
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and ex-Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, surprisingly missed out on top 10 places, as France Football announced their 50 greatest managers ever on Tuesday.
The top spot went to legendary Dutchman, Rinus Michels, who is credited with creating ‘Total Football’.
Michels, who died in 2005, took the crown following a 32-year managerial career that saw him win the European Cup with Ajax, La Liga with Barcelona and the European Championship with Holland in 1988.
But it was Arsene Wenger’s exemption from the top 30 caused the biggest stir on social media.
The Frenchman guided Arsenal to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and five Community Shields during his 22-year reign.
But he was named five places behind Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp – who came in at 27th behind Bob Paisley.
Arsene Wenger was also ranked behind the likes of Diego Simeone (31) Zinedine Zidane (22), Louis Van Gaal (18) and Brian Clough (15).
Ex-United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, came in second. The Scot won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, five League Cups and two Champions League titles during his time at Old Trafford.
Guardiola came in at fifth with Johan Cruyff at fourth and Arrigo Sacchi ahead of them both in third place.
