Quiz! Can you name the 50 youngest ever Premier League managers?
You might think that the trend is for managers to get younger in modern times, but that isn’t entirely borne out by this quiz. A couple of the managers below were – clue alert – even in charge during the first ever Premier League season of 1992/93.
One important point to note, however, is that each was a permanent Premier League boss. Short-term caretakers are excluded, unless they went on to gain the full-time role.
Bad news for such luminaries as Attilio Lombardo, just 32 when he was made temporary player-manager of Crystal Palace – although the Italian was already sporting a hairline that wouldn’t have disgraced an 82-year-old.
Ten minutes are on the clock and each manager’s age during their first Premier League game, plus the club they took charge of, is below. It’s damn tricky, but do let us know your score @FourFourTwo – and please challenge some pals while you’re at it.
