Top 5 Italian managers to have featured in the Premier League
Italian football was at the peak of the footballing world in the 80's and 90's, the decline in the overall quality of football in the recent years has been a sad story really. But that does not mean the style of play has changed.
Italian teams are still known for their tactical and organized play. And Italian teams tend to be especially organized and solid at the back. And a lot of credit for such style of play is given to the managers of the clubs. And over the years Serie A has produced some of the finest managers of the game.
So, here's a list of 5 of the best Italian managers to have managed a Premier League club or are currently managing one.
#5 Maurizio Sarri
He is a manager of proven ability, with highlights of his resume being his efforts to seal promotion for Empoli in his second season itself and back-to-back Champions league qualification for Napoli. He was voted league's coach of the year in 2017. In his last two seasons with Napoli, he helped them secure the title of "Campioni d'Inverno" or Winter champions.
Let's hope he can do the same with the Blues, who would like to be back in the Champions League next season.
