Here are the 5 best managers of the modern era:
#5 Zinedine Zidane
One of the most successful managers in the last few years, Zinedine Zidane has had a stunning run with Real Madrid since taking over in January 2016.
Zidane's tactics have worked well for the Los Blancos and helped them to two Champions League titles and the La Liga, breaking Barcelona's hegemony. He also helped his club break archrivals Barcelona's 39 match unbeaten record with a 40 match unbeaten run. The former Real Madrid player has also managed to win the dressing room at the Santiago Bernabeu which boasts of some big names in world football like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos.
Zidane has helped Real Madrid win 7 titles till now and it looks that he will be managing Madrid for a long period of time. He has a win percentage of 74.49% which is very impressive and with time he can possibly become the greatest manager Los Blancos has ever had in their history.
