3. Zinedine Zidane
He is the only manager to win the UEFA Champions League 3 times in a row. His team has always been flooded by attack-minded players such as Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Modric, Marcelo, and also the club captain Sergio Ramos who despite being a Centre-Back has scored his fair share of goals under the gaffer. The four-time golden boot winner and current Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has had his best years under the French coach scoring 112 goals in 114 games, he was also the top scorer of the Champions League every season he has played under Zidane. Furthermore, the Real Madrid team has scored the landmark of 507 goals in 211 games playing for Zidane. The Galacticos boss brings the best out of Real Madrid. He is statistically the best manager in the Los Blancos’ history.
2. Pep Guardiola
Pep being on this list is no surprise. He is one of the most attacking football managers in the world right now. He is a tactical genius and plays possession-based “beautiful” football, following the great Johan Cruyff philosophy. Pep is an elite offensive coach which is putative by the fact that his team Manchester City scored 102 goals in last season’s Premier League, more than any other team in the league.
His star player and main striker Kun Aguero has scored the most goals under him, netting 118 times in 162 games. The Spanish coach has managed stellar attacking teams like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and of course Manchester City winning 29 trophies in 11 years which is a ridiculous record. His attacking gameplay is surely a joy to watch.
1. Jurgen Klopp
Klopp is considered the best manager in the world right now. His attack-oriented tactics have helped Liverpool win 4 titles in the past 18 months including UEFA Champions League and the long-awaited Premier League title. He is an endorser of Gegenpressing, a counter-pressing tactic in which the team attempts to regain possession as soon as possible after losing the ball.
He has players like Mane, Firmino, Salah, and Origi in his team who aid the manager’s attack-minded approach. Liverpool under Klopp has averaged 2.24 goals per game in Premier League 2019-20 which is the second-best goal to game ratio in the league. He was also renowned for his attacking gameplay back in his Dortmund days.
