Guttman started playing football as a teenager in the youth ranks of Hapoel Haifa but never managed to play for the senior team. He moved to play for Beitar Netanya in Liga Alef and later played in Liga Bet for Maccabi Neve Sha'anan and Maccabi Kiryat Bialik.
After six years of playing in the lower divisions in Israeli football he retired from playing and the following season started to work as a manager. His first club as a manager was the club where he last played - Maccabi Kiryat Bialik. The next season he moved to manage Beitar Haifa in Liga Alef. A year later he worked as the manager of Hapoel Tirat HaCarmel and in 1989-90 he managed Maccabi Tamra in Liga Artzit, Tamra got relegated in the end of the season.
In 1990 Guttman worked as the assistant manager of Maccabi Haifa. Guttman worked under Shlomo Scharf for two seasons, winning both the Israeli championship and the state cup in the 1990-91 season. In 1992 Guttman left Haifa to work as the manager of Tzafririm Holon, later on he managed Maccabi Herzliya and Hapoel Beit She'an.
In 2001 he became coach of Hapoel Petah Tikva. In the 2001–02 season the team finished sixth; Gutman resigned in May immediately following the season's conclusion. He subsequently returned to Hapoel Be'er Sheva, and later spent two years coaching Paralimni in Cyprus.
From February 2007 until early December 2007 he coached AEL Limassol before joining Hapoel Tel Aviv as successor to Guy Luzon. He helped the team escape relegation, gradually building the team until they won the Israeli double - Israeli Premier League championship and Israel State Cup - in 2010. The following season he coached the team to its first-ever qualification to the UEFA Champions League group stage. In May 2011, after winning the 2011 Israeli State Cup, he left Hapoel Tel Aviv.
On 27 December 2011, he was appointed manager of the Israeli national football team. On October 14, 2015 after the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign was highly unsuccessful, Guttman decided to leave his position as the manager of the national side.
