FourFourTwo's 50 Best Football Managers in the World 2016

Welcome to 2016's edition of's 50 Best Managers in the World. 

Following the popularity of last year's edition we thought we'd do it all over again, charting the movers and shakers in dugouts around the planet after a genuinely sensational year of football in which the underdogs have bit hard. 

You won't agree with our choices, of course, but we've consulted dozens of our experts around the world to bring you our final list. Please join the debate (that's debate folks, not shouty abuse) with us on social media at @FourFourTwo (#FFT50Managers) and on Facebook – we'll be glad to hear your opinions.

So sit back, read our reasonings and keep coming back throughout the week as we run down our top 50...
