Where does the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson make it on all time list?
After the announcement by Sir Alex Ferguson that he would be calling time on his 27-year reign at Manchester United at the end of the season, fanatix takes a look back at the most successful managers in English football.
5. Brian Clough
Clubs – Hartlepool, Derby County, Brighton, Leeds Utd, Nottingham Forest.
Honours – Two First Division Titles, two European Cups, four League Cups, one Charity Shield.
The man known affectionately as ‘Old Big Head’ was never shy to give his opinion on matters to do with football – or anything else.
The apparently impossible task of turning Derby from Division Two minnows into Division One champions alongside assistant Peter Taylor eventually earned him the job at Leeds.
Yet a tumultuous reign at the Yorkshire club lasted just 44 days and a manager with less self confidence may have been crushed by their failure.
Clough simply moved to Forest and won back-to-back European Cups – only the second time in history an English club has achieved the feat.
