Forget the players - in football, it's the managers who really count, as their strategies guide clubs up and down the ladder. A manager's skills and influence (or lack thereof) can make or break a season, and bosses may be dumped with unseemly haste if they fail to make an impression. Those who master the game, on the other hand, can write their names into the history books and are forever beloved by fans. The Managers profiles the best of all-time from around the world. Among the true greats are Sir Alex Ferguson, the Man United legend with a record 13 Premier League titles; Brian Clough, one of the most fascinating characters in football; Jose Mourinho, the 'Special One', who has tasted both League and European glory; and Udo Lattek, the most successful manager of the German game. In this essential volume, relive the triumphs, quirks, disappointments and redemptions of these unforgettable football characters.
