Ranking the 4 Best Managers in La Liga

Over the last half decade, many of Europe's top coaches have been at the helm of Spanish teams.

In terms of trophies and tangible success, the dominant manager of recent history was Pep Guardiola, the man who left Barcelona just last season.

There is also Jose Mourinho who is widely regarded as the best manager in football and last season was on the verge of taking Real Madrid back to the pinnacle of the sport.

But when rating and deciding who the "best" managers are, we have to look beyond the number of trophies.

We have to look at what tactical knowledge a manager brings. We need to measure success while considering the talent and wealth at each manager's disposal.

When we do that, we realize that the managers who have earned the most success for their teams were not necessarily the ones who have the most trophies to show.

History may measure coaches by how much silverware they win, but contemporary analysts can look beyond that and appreciate what other managers bring to the league on and off the pitch.

What follows is a list of the three best managers in La Liga. The list is ranked according to results and actions only in Spain.

I repeat, only time spent in charge of Spanish teams is taken into account here, not anything these coaches did at other teams in other leagues.

After reading, I encourage you to comment and let us all know who you think are the best bosses in La Liga and why.
