Premier League Best Managers of 2020

The longest season in the history of the English Premier League finally ended with Liverpool crowned as the champion. It was The Reds first premiere league title after a thirty years drought and no one was more influential in achieving this feat more than their German coach, Jürgen Klopp. The charismatic coach of Liverpool proved once and for all that he is one of premier league best managers of 2020.

 Liverpool was on the verge of winning the title back in march 2020 and they needed only two wins to become the fastest ever champions in the history of league, but the league was postponed due to Covid-19 Pandemic and they had to wait three months before they could eventually celebrate their historic achievement.

 Manchester City, guided by Pep Guardiola in his fourth season with the club came second. While two former players proved themselves among premier league best managers of 2020. Frank Lampard's Chelsea side finished fourth and Manchester united somehow managed to reach the top four spots at the last week after defeating Leicester City 2-0. Brandon Rodgers did an amazing job with the foxes and could have finished second had his team hadn't lose momentum after the restart of the league.

Meanwhile, Wolver Hampton was simply amazing under Nuno Espirito and managed to qualify for the UEFA Europa League for the second straight season. Chris wilder had a historic year with his newly promoted team, Southampton as they managed to finish ninth in their first season back in the premiere league.

Premier League Best Managers of 2020

From Jürgen Klopp's master plan for his winning side, Liverpool to Pep Guardiola's worst season in three years and Tottenham's resurrection under Jose Mourinho, we will take a look at the achievements of the premier league best managers of 2020

Jose Mourinho (Tottenham)

Premier League Best Managers of 2020

Total Matches as the manager: 26

  • Wins: 13
  • Draws: 6
  • Losses: 7
  • Points: 46
  • Best Result: 3-0 win against Leicester City, 5-0 win against Burnly
  • Worst Result: 3-1 loss to Sheffield United
  • Final Ranking in the Table: 6th
  • Achievements: Qualification for the UEFA Europa League

Many will argue that including "The Special One" in the list of premier league best managers of 2020 is not that fair, but let's not forget that Mourinho became Tottenham's manager midway through the season, when they were in the 14th place at the table and the player's self-confidence was at its lowest.

 Moreover, Harry Kane was injured for most of the second half of the season and Tottenham had a very hard task to climb the table and reach the top six. Yet that was exactly what Mourinho promised at the beginning of his tenure and he simply kept his promise. Tottenham ended the season 6th and qualified for the UEFA Europa League.

For sure there will be much to see from the UCL's 2018-2019 Runners-up in the new premier league season. Will they be able to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the crown? We seriously doubt that. But they will surely be a force to reckon with again and one thing even Mourinho's critics agree with is that the ever controversial manager guarantees silverware. Our guess? A good campaign in the premier league and a lot of good results in the Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær (Manchester United)

Premier League Best Managers of 2020

Total Matches as the manager (in the Premier League): 38

  • Wins: 18
  • Draws: 12
  • Losses: 8
  • Points: 66
  • Best Result: 4-0 wins against Chelsea and Norwich
  • Worst Result: 2-0 loss in five different matches
  • Final Ranking in the Table: Third
  • Achievements: Europa League Semi-Finalist

The Norwegian is considered a legend at Old Trafford after scoring the famous winning goal against Bayern Munchen back at 1999, yet this has not guaranteed him the support of the fans as the manager.

 Solskjær's tactics at Manchester united has had its pros and co.'s. He started his managerial Career with the Red Devils brightly, then had a rough spell which could even cost him his job. Eventually he and his team were able to bounce back all the way to the top of the table.

The signing of the highly creative midfielder, Bruno Fernandez in the winter transfer window was key to their success, as the Portuguese sensation greatly improved his team's attacking force in the race for a Uefa Champions league spot. Paul Pogba missed most of the season with an injury, but was back in time to build a lethal partnership for Fernandez, and with martial finding back his form in front of the goal, they were able to snatch a UCL spot right at the very last game of the season, after beating their rivals Leicester city 2-0.

Manchester united fans would feel a bit bitter after the Europa League semi-final elimination at the hands of eventual champions, Sevilla. But for the first time in the post-Fergie period, the future looks bright for the Red Devils. Especially since Manchester united is back to the UEFA Champions League and it will give them more financial power when it comes to securing the services of best players in the football world.

  • Worst Result: 5-2 defeat to Chelsea
  • Final Ranking in the Table: 7th
  • Achievements: Premier League Manager of the Month (June 2020)

Nuno Espirito fully deserve to be among the best premier league managers of 2020. His exciting team was a true underdog both in the premier league and in the Uefa Europa League. Wolver Hampton was a nightmare for giants of the premier league throughout the season. They reached the latter stages of the Europa League and managed to finish seventh in the league. In fact had it not been for their defeat in the last game of the season, they would qualify for Europa League again.

Nuno Espirito's team was a joy to watch. Their monster of a winger, Adama Traore was his team main star and with Europe's giants in the line for Traore's signature, Espirito will have a hard job to keep his star man for another season. However, Nuno Espirito has proven himself as one of the premier league best Managers of 2020 and most probably will be able to build a strong team, with or without his talisman winger.

For most parts of the season the Foxes were Liverpool's main title challenger and had it not been for their loss of form after the restart of league, Leicester could well finish the campaign as the runners-up.

Rodgers is famous for getting the best out of his players and the fact that his team's main striker, Jamie Vardy was the best scorer of the league at the age of 33 is a testament to his great abilities. Rodgers work at Leicester City was so impressive that despite eventually losing on the top four place, he was nominated for Barclays Premier League Manager of the season award. A feat he had done twice in the Scottish league and once more in the Premier League. In His best spell at 2020 Leicester enjoyed an eight-match winning streak, while his team's incredible 9-0 win at Southampton was the biggest away win in the competition, and the joint-biggest victory overall.
