Many foreign coaches have flocked to coach the English Premier League throughout its history, some of whom have achieved impressive successes and, on the contrary, others.
Teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and then Everton, which are the oldest in the competition and the most successful, have used foreign schools in the tournament in many periods.
These experiences have resulted in many distinguished coaches, the most prominent of which is Al Ain Sports in the following lines.
Sir Alex Ferguson is the most successful coach in the history of the Premier League (Premier League), not only in terms of foreigners, but overall.
Ferguson led Manchester United to 13 league titles from 1986 to 2013, and since the inception of the 1990s his team has been the first favorite in every season to win the title.
When Fergie took over as coach of Man U in November 1986, the team was struggling to win a match, and the coach remained under great pressure in his first season, and then became the most successful coach in the team’s history, after leading him to 38 titles in various tournaments.
Fergie won the siren title after leading United to the three league, cup and Champions League triplets in 1999, then won the Ears Cup again in 2008, and qualified for the final in 2009 and 2011.
Frenchman Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal coach from 1996 to 2018, is considered the second most successful test after Fergie in terms of continuity.
Unlike Fergie, who suffered from difficult beginnings in the early years, Wenger’s most successful years in North London were at the very beginning of his career.
In the first 10 years from 1996 to 2006, he led the French coach “Al Janners” to the Premier League title 3 times, and qualified with him for the 2006 UEFA Champions League final, and achieved the local double twice in 1998 and 2002, after which he won the league in the 2003-2004 unbeaten season, which is An achievement that was not repeated before or after him.
With Arsenal, Wenger won 7 FA Cups to become the most successful coach in the history of the oldest tournament in football history.
With the arrival of Jose Mourinho to coach Chelsea in 2004, a difference occurred in the balance of power in the Premiership, and Chelsea joined the elite of the competition teams.
Manchester United is no longer the champion and the number one candidate for the tournament, but the “Blues” team shared this advantage for years, while Arsenal hid from the competition.
Mourinho led Chelsea to 3 league titles in 2005, 2006 and 2015, and he led the team more than once to the semi-finals of the Champions League, but he failed to win the continental championship with the “Blues” despite being crowned with fewer teams such as Porto and Inter Milan.
Spaniard Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City coach, is walking close to his third Premier League title, which he achieved before in 2018 and 2019.
Winning the title in the current season, which witnesses City’s advantage by a large point difference over Manchester United, its closest competitor (11 points), will make Guardiola equal with Mourinho, but in a less than 5-year period, since City’s first leadership in 2016.
While the five-year period was Mourinho’s time with Chelsea only, away from the experiences of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Guardiola made City the greatest team in the history of the competition in the view of many coaches, and led it in 2018 to win the title with 100 points, as an unprecedented achievement.
German Jurgen Klopp, coach of Liverpool, suffices him that he succeeded in returning the Reds to the Premier League title in 2020 after an absence of 30 years.
Klopp led Liverpool for the first time in October 2015, and in his first season he succeeded in leading the team to the European League final, then in 2018 he led the team to the Champions League final, and then won the two-eared cup in 2019 as the first English team to win the title since 2012.
Even before the 2020 title, Liverpool lost the Premier League in 2019, by a point behind Manchester City, as the best runner-up team in the history of the tournament.
Klopp has rebuilt Liverpool again over the past years by including a group of the most important players such as Brazilian Alison Baker, Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Dutchman Virgil Van Dyck, Senegalese Sadio Mane, and others.
