This list of best Premier League Managers – Where would Rafa Benitez and Steve Bruce fit?

3 years ago

I came across this list of Premier League Managers.

It was a Manchester City fan Twitter account.

They had put the 20 Premier League Managers in order of who is the ‘best’, in descending order.

Interesting stuff and makes for good debate.

No surprise they put Guardiola at the very top and whilst they have spent loads of dosh, they are the PL champions, so fair enough.

Personally, I can’t see how you have Lampard as high as tenth, he took a sixth placed Championship team in Derby County and a year later took them to sixth.

How can you have Farke, Wilder and Smith so far lower down when they actually got their clubs promoted?

What strikes me the most though is where I would imagine Steve Bruce and Rafa Benitez featuring in this list…

Personally, I think it is a bit of a joke having Pellegrini as high as four and certainly Rafa would rank higher than him.

I would say Benitez definitely top six and competing with Emery and Nuno for fourth, with the former Newcastle boss edging it.

As for Steve Bruce?

Well I think that is a very easy one and usefully the Man City list already has him/us there…

1. Pep
2. Klopp
3. Pochettino
4. Manuel Pellegrini
5. Emery
6. Nuno Santo
7. Howe
8. Rodgers
9. Marco Silva
10. Lampard
11. Javi García
12. Hodgson
13. Sean Dyche
14. Ralph
15. Farke
16. Ole
17. Wilder
18. Potter
19. Smith
20. ? (Newcastle)
