A manager’s role is very crucial to a team’s success. If the manager is unable to effectively utilise his players, even if you have a strong team, you could still go trophyless. Premier League managers face the extra burden of operating in one of the toughest and most watched football leagues in the world. Here, we have the 2023-24 Premier League Managers Ranked from worst to best to get an idea of how teams have fared in the season so far.
20. Paul Heckingbottom (Sheffield United)
Heckingbottom joined Sheffield United as under-23s in 2020. He even handled the first team on an interim basis before becoming the permanent manager of the club in November of 2021. He led the team to the Premier League after finishing in the top two in the Championship last season. They have not made an ideal start to their Premier League campaign, with just 5 points in the first 12 games, but there’s still a lot time of to get back on track.
19. Rob Edwards (Luton Town)
Rob Edwards only became the manager of the club in November 2022 and went on to achieve promotion with the club in the play-off final against Coventry City. They also have not made the ideal start to the season, having won just 1 of the first 12 games.
18. Vincent Kompany (Burnley)
Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany became the manager of the club in June 2022, and led the club to the Championship title in his first season at the club.

So far, they have only secured 4 points in the first 12 matches, which is very disappointing.
17. Andoni Iraola (Bournemouth)
Iraola replaced Gary O’Neil as the manager of the club in the summer, a move which definitely raised eyebrows.

This season, so far, they have secured 13 points in the first 12 matches.
15. Sean Dyche (Everton)

14. Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace)
