English football has seen a lot of top class managers taking their clubs to new heights. But it has been a rare occurrence that they have stayed at the same club for any extended period of time. Here, we take a look at 5 of the best managers who have been at one club for a long time (the list is only of managers since the start of the Premier League Era).
5. Sean O’Driscoll
He may not have managed a Premier League club yet but Sean O’Driscoll has had a very successful managerial career so far. He started out as a manager at Bournemouth, from 2000 to 2006. Even though there was very little money to spend, he still managed to get promotion for the club to Division 2 in the 2002-2003 season.
He became the manager of Doncaster in 2006 and he was there till 2011, in which time he was a huge success for the club. In his first season in charge, he won the Football League Trophy while he helped Doncaster get promoted to the Championship in the next season itself. While he could not help them gain promotion to the Premier League, he did make them a comfortable mid table team even though he was on a very tight budget.
