Premier League has always been blessed with some great managers, probably the best in the world. Managers like Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsène Wenger, Jose Mourinho have graced the Premier League with their sheer brilliance. These managers have accomplished huge success in the Premier League as well as all over Europe.
In football, managers have a far more imperative role than in any other sport. All the intricate tactics they develop are very clinical for their team. Even nowadays the Premier League is sanctified by many intelligent coaches and in this article, we are going to get all 20 Premier League managers ranked for the 2020-21 season.
Here are all 20 Premier League managers ranked for the 2020-21 season.
20) Scott Parker – Fulham
Scott Parker played 128 matches for Fulham before his retirement in 2017, then in February 2019, he was named the caretaker manager of Fulham. He helped the team to achieve promotion by winning the EFL Championship play-offs. He was then given a permanent 2-year contract. The team is right now at the 17th position in the Premier League just one spot above the relegation territory. For an amateur manager, he has done a decent job, winning 43.2 % of his total games played.
19) Graham Potter – Brighton & Hove
Potter was appointed as the manager of Brighton & Hove Albian in May, 2019. The English coach has a progressive and unorthodox coaching style. He prefers possession-based attacking football. He has a quite a tremendous success story with Swedish club Ostersunds FK promoting them from 4th tier Swedish football to top division and leading them to the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League knockout stage. Brighton are above the relegation zone for now, but they’ll have to work harder to remain in the league.
18) Slaven Bilic – West Brom
Being 18th at the league table, the newly promoted manager has a lot of work to do so if he wants to keep the team in the top flight. His side played some really attractive football last season, a huge credit of which goes to Matheus Pereira. The low budget of the club has left the gaffer stranded as he is not able to sign star players to add more man-power to his squad. His team was a runner-up in last season’s Championship that earned them the promotion back to the Premier League.
17) Chris Wilder – Sheffield United
Wilder was appointed as the manager of his boyhood club Sheffield United on 12 May 2016. The English coach can be pardoned for resting on his laurels this season. The Blades finished 9th last season in the Premier League under him. Wilder won the EFL League One with Sheffield in the 2016-17 season and they were the runner up for the 2018-19 Championship that won them a promotion to the Premier League. He has a lot of work to do by stirring them to get out of the relegation zone.
16) Sean Dyche – Burnley
Kettering-born Dyche is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having been in charge of Burnley since October 2012. Burnley’s Premier League finishes since their most recent promotion have been 16th, 7th, 15th, and 10th under Sean Dyce. With such little resources, he has done a rather convincing job with the club, keeping them in the top flight. The manager also guided the Clarets to the Europa League qualification in 2018. The team is in danger of being relegated, being at 19th place at this time, but we hope the boss man pulls them out of this position soon.
15) Steve Bruce – Newcastle
Steve’s a boyhood Newcastle fan who took over Rafa Benitez as the new gaffer of the St James’ Park club on July 17, 2019. The former Manchester United man has not won any silver wear in his managerial career but he is a veteran of English football and has been managing in England since 1998. The Magpies are currently sitting in 14th place in the league and will aim to finish in the top half of the table.
14) David Moyes – West Ham United
After a surprising return to West Ham United, it seems like he is doing a fairly reasonable job. His team has hoarded 11 points in 8 games this season. I am not sure that his first tenure with the Hammers can be deemed as a success but let’s see what results he brings up this time. The coach still has to make a few improvements so that he convinces the cub that he is the right man to lead the squad.
