List of European Cup and UEFA Champions League winning managers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The European Cup was an association football competition contested from 1956 to 1992. Spanish manager José Villalonga Llorente led Real Madrid to success in the inaugural 1956 European Cup Final and repeated the feat the following season. English clubs and managers dominated the competition in the late 1970s and early 1980s, winning every tournament from 1977 to 1982. Despite this, Italian managers have been the most successful, winning ten of the tournaments since 1956.

The competition became the UEFA Champions League in 1993,[1] with Belgian Raymond Goethals leading French club Marseille to success that year.

Only Bob Paisley has won the tournament on three occasions, leading Liverpool to success in the 1977, 1978 and 1981 European Cup Finals; 18 other managers have won the title on two occasions. Only four managers have won the title with two different clubs: Ernst Happel, with Feyenoord in 1970 and Hamburg in 1983; Ottmar Hitzfeld, with Borussia Dortmund in 1997 and Bayern Munich in 2001; José Mourinho, with Porto in 2004 and Internazionale in 2010; and Jupp Heynckes, with Real Madrid in 1998 and Bayern Munich in 2013. Six men have won the tournament both as a player and as a manager, namely Miguel Muñoz, Giovanni Trapattoni, Johan Cruyff, Carlo Ancelotti, Frank Rijkaard and Josep Guardiola.[2][3]
