This is a list of Recopa Sudamericana winning football managers. The Recopa Sudamericana is an annual football contest played between the previous season's Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana winners. The first final was played in 1989 over two legs between Uruguayan team Nacional and Argentina's Racing; Nacional won 4–1 under the guidance of Héctor Núñez.

As of 2009, Argentinian managers have been the most successful, winning six tournaments in total, followed by Brazilians with five wins and Uruguayans with four titles. On only four occasions was the tournament won by foreign managers—Croatian Mirko Jozić led Chilean side Colo-Colo to victory in 1992, Uruguayan Jorge Fossati led LDU Quito to win in 2009 and his compatriot Luis Cubilla won the tournament with Paraguayan club Olimpia in 1991 and 2003.

Jozić is the only manager from outside South America to have won the competition. Olimpia, Colo-Colo, and LDU Quito are the only winning sides that has never won the trophy with a national manager. Luis Cubilla, Telê Santana and Alfio Basile are the only managers to have won the competition twice. Santana and Basile did so in consecutive years.

By year[edit]

Telê Santana won back-to-back titles with São Paulo in 1993 and 1994.
Luiz Felipe Scolari won the Cup with Grêmio in 1996.
