The most successful coaches of all time in sports

Top 5 / Top 10

It takes a lot to be a successful coach. To win professional games consistently, you need to be an exceptional motivator, a near-genius tactician, and by far the hardest working person at the club.

There are some coaches that have stood head and shoulders above the rest, leading their teams to success upon success. Here are some of the all-time greats.

Alex Ferguson is undoubtedly one of the most successful football club coaches of all time. Leading Manchester United to no less than 38 different trophies over 26 years, including two European Champion’s League wins.

The only regret among English football fans is that he could never be prized away from Manchester to lead the country to international success.

Pundits put his success down to rare combination of masterful strategic acumen, along with a monumental ability to motivate players and get the best out of them.

His longevity is impressive – given his consistently explosive nature on the sidelines, fans and press have wondered how he’s lasted so long without keeling over. In fact, the man only just retired, at a ripe old 71 years old.

The fact is though, tough old Sir Alex has led Manchester United to success after success, and will go down in history as the most successful football coach of our era.
