As a replacement of the original Football league first division, Premier League was formed back in 1992. Since then more than 240 managers have taken charge of the 50 clubs which have played in the league. Almost for 3 decades, this league has offered us some of the greatest moments of the beautiful game. Among the great modern great managers of the game, almost everyone has tried their luck in the league. And some of them had their fair share of success. Let’s find out, the top five managers who have registered the most wins in the Premier League era.
Jose Mourinho(217 wins):
It takes some special kind of guts to arrive in a new league from a foreign land and attract a whole room of press towards oneself. Only Jose Mourinho could have done that and delivered consecutive Premier League titles in his first stint as a Chelsea manager. Roman Abramovic appointed Mourinho after his heroics with Porto and the rest is history. The charismatic Portuguese returned to Stamford Bridge dugout back in 2014, after his Madrid spell, and once again deliver a Premier League title. His recent debacle with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs doesn’t really justify his greatness in the league.
David Moyes(235 wins):
The Scottish international left some of the great names behind in the list as his longevity in the league is pretty impressive. With managing almost 600 league games, he has a brilliant legacy at Everton. His 2003/04 season with Everton was a staggering one, as he delivered them champions league football. However, his stint at Manchester United, succeeding the great Sir Alex was a blot in his coaching cv. But appointment at West Ham is quite good for him as the hammers are doing wonders under him.
Harry Redknapp(236 wins):
Despite never winning the Premier League once, this English manager has the most number of wins among the English coaches. He sits in third place in this elite list which itself speaks about his brilliance. Good spells at Spurs, Portsmouth, and West Ham, he won 8 managers of the month awards.
Arsene Wenger( 426 wins):
The only manager to beat the great Sir Alex in managing league game numbers, this French manager revolutionized Arsenal in particular and the Premier League in general. His unique attacking philosophy and set up his teams to nullify the opponents by keeping the ball improved the quality of the league. His incredible feat to win the golden Premier League is still hasn’t been repeated again. So, it is quite evident how great of a manager he really was.
Sir Alex Ferguson(528 wins):
The most successful manager in British football history almost tops every record in the Premier League. With 13 Premier League titles in his bag, the great Scot left a legacy that will be nearly impossible to match again. He bagged 11 managers of the season awards during his time at Manchester United. Not only. tactically but his man-management is something that is a prototype in every field of the world.
