If Real Madrid win the Champions League on Saturday, manager Carlo Ancelotti will become just the second manager to have won three European Cups.

If Atletico Madrid triumph in Lisbon, Portugal, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone will join the illustrious club of coaches to have lifted the trophy at all.

So who are the most successful managers in European competition history?

The following slideshow will look at 23 of them—compiling successes between European Cups, UEFA Cups and Europa Leagues and, finally, Cup Winners’ Cups.

Other honours, such as the Super Cup and Intertoto Cup, have not been included in the ranking, nor has the old Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

For this exercise we’re concerned with the three most prestigious continental honours, and those managers level on two trophies apiece have been arranged chronologically.
