Top 5 Premier League managers. FootballTop readers’ choice

These men are sophisticated, cool and charismatic. And they probably know that. We might not present them a weird glittering statuette they will forget about the next day, but we will definitely tell them about their place in your ranking.

1. Sir Alex Ferguson (Manchester United)

It’s no wonder he is the №1 football manager in the English Premier League, according to FootballTop.com readers’ voting. Being at the helm of Manchester United since 1986, Sir Alex Ferguson has gained a reputation of one of the most successful managers in the history of football. With Fergie being in charge during the last 26 years, the Red Devils have lifted more trophies than ever before in the club’s history.


2. Arsene Wenger (Arsenal)

Wenger is recognized as a manager who prefers to develop young players instead of buying expensive ones. He has introduced changes to the club’s training system and the diet of players, which contribute to Arsenal’s positive results both in the national league and European tournaments. Thanks to him, such names as Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Cesc Fàbregas and Robin van Persie became well-known in the European football. Often referred to as Le Professeur, Wenger is the club’s most successful manager to date.


3. Brendan Rodgers (Liverpool)

The newly appointed head coach of Liverpool was hired after 2 years of successful work at Swansea. Brendan Rodgers is put in charge of a top-flight team for the first time, so managing Liverpool is going to be a serious task for him. But it seems that football fans have their trust in Rodgers, as he occupies the 3rd position among the managers in the Premier League.


4. Roberto Mancini (Manchester City)

Following his brilliant managerial career at Internazionale, Roberto Mancini headed Manchester City in 2009 and led the team to winning the 2011 FA Cup and the 2011/2012 English Premier League. His success both in Italy and England contributed to his worldwide recognition among football fans, including our readers.


5. Andre Villas-Boas (Tottenham Hotspur)

Andre Villas-Boas enjoyed his successful spell at Porto, becoming the youngest manager to lift a European trophy. Following his major success in Portugal, Chelsea hired the promising manager in 2011. Unfortunately, he was dismissed due to the club’s poor performance in the league. In 2012 the coach was put in charge of Tottenham Hotspur.

Rogers, Mancini and Boas have absolutely nothing of whatsoever to do with the top flight! All they do is keep their teams afloat, no movement. How about David Moyes, who's guiding his boys to Champions League spot? How about Steve Clarke, who led his mediocre folks to wins over Chelsea and Liverpool? Rubbish
