Managers can never take their team to a piece of silverware singlehandedly, but with a team of an experienced coaching staff who have been credited as being the 'brains' behind a team's success.

A club can only function when the entire squad works together in order to deliver. Training their squad to the limit with the help of the right coaches is what really makes a difference, after all, it is them who forge the players.

The best coaches are always in Europe, and they have never done anything alone, as, with the help of their assistant coach, the duo have been able to achieve the kind of heights that no one can imagine.

Five managers and their assistant coaches have made a name for themselves by working together and delivering in some of the most difficult competitions in all of the continent.

While the head coach takes care of the club, the assistant coach makes sure the tactics are all up to date.

#5 Jurgen Klopp and Zeljko Buvac (Liverpool)

17 years and not apart!

The Bosnian-Serb has held his alliance with Jurgen Klopp for as long as 17 years and still continues to keep tabs with him.


He is often considered as the 'brain' of the entire tactical system that Klopp has laid out with both Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.

With Liverpool, the duo has stepped up and flipped the way things worked at the Anfield by introducing counter-attacking football and strengthening the flanks, allowing midfielders to be a part of the attack.

Buvac had his issues with Klopp right before the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last season, and it did look as if the two are going to separate once and for all.

However, speculations aside, the two have formed an alliance once again and are going strong this season. The duo is surely one of the best coaching personnel in all of Europe.
