The top 5 managers for 2017 in Europe
Managers play an important role in club football. In a sport where players from different countries play together as a team, a manager is vital to the success of the club.
They do a lot more than deciding who plays and what tactics to employ. More often than not, managers decide the fate of a club and though they can't guarantee success, they are the ones who ensure that a team wins trophies
On that note, Let's have a look at the top 5 managers in Europe for 2017
#5 Pep Guardiola (Manchester City)
Manchester City finished third in the Premier League last season, behind champions Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. They also had a mediocre Champions League campaign which saw them eliminated in the round of 16. Pep's first season at Manchester City cannot be termed a success.
However, 2017/18 season has been a different story. The Citizens are yet to lose a game in the Premier League and have been ruthless this season, winning 17 out of 18 league games and scoring 56 goals in the process.
Their form in the UEFA Champions League has been no different as they finished on top of Group F winning 5 out of the 6 group games. Pep has revolutionized City and they have the most fearsome attack in Europe.
They have already opened up an 11 point lead in the Premier League and are looking in great shape to challenge for the European title. Pep is beginning to stamp his authority and there seems to be no stopping City for now.
