Guardiola, Klopp, Ferguson: Who are the best and worst Premier League managers in history?

Klopp and Guardiola are on the PL's best manager list

Football is all about glory and to achieve that, your team needs to be successful.

It needs to win matches. To win matches, your team needs a good manager. 

Over the years, the Premier League has seen some of the best tacticians to ever grace the game. 

We're talking Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp and of course, Sir Alex Ferguson.

They all managed big clubs, but we've seen some legends take charge outside of the 'big six' - the likes of Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson, for example. 

Defining 'the best manager in history' is tough, because it's often subjective. So we're not going to do that today. 

Instead, GIVEMESPORT have decided to take a look at each Premier League club's best and worst ever manager, based on points per game. So let's get into it.
