Full lists of world greatest managers of all times

Respected magazine France Football have named Rinus Michels their greatest manager of all-time and Sir Alex Ferguson has to settle for second place.

Despite being regarded by many in the football world as the best ever, Ferguson – who won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues – was pipped to first by former France boss Rinus Michels

Michels, who died in March 2005, won trophies across Germany, Spain and Holland before becoming manager of the Dutch international manager.

Other accolades include being named the greatest coach of the century by FIFA in 1999 as well as being recognised for masterminding Dutch football’s era of dominance in the 1970s

He led Holland to the World Cup final in 1974 before winning the European Championship in 1988. Arrigo Sacchi and Johan Cruyff followed in third and fourth.

Pep Guardiola leads the way for those managers currently working in the game.

Guardiola, who is aiming to lead Manchester City to back-to-back Premier League titles, is No 5 on the list.

Carlo Ancelotti, the current boss of Napoli, is eighth. Bill Shankly, the man who managed Grimsby Town before leading Liverpool to the UEFA Cup in 1973, made it to No 10.

Sir Matt Busby was one place behind Shankly while Jose Mourinho came 13th with Brian Clough in 15th.

Marcelo Bielsa, who is trying to guide Leeds back to the Premier League, is 48th on the list.

    I have to show my thanks to you just for bailing me out of this condition. After surfing around throughout the internet and finding advice which are not productive, I thought my life was well over. Living without the presence of solutions to the difficulties you’ve fixed all through your entire site is a crucial case, and the kind which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not encountered your web site. Your primary understanding and kindness in handling all things was very helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. It’s possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web sites to any individual who needs to have care about this matter.
