Who is the only manager to have won the European Cup three times?

Zinedine Zidane is the only manager to have won three consecutive titles with Real Madrid. Bob Paisley was the first manager to win the FA Cup three times, all with Liverpool. Ernst Happel is the only manager to win a championship with two different clubs. Ottmar Hitzfeld, the champion in 1997 and 2001, played for both Munich Munich Bayern and Germany.

An interesting fact about Zidane is that he has never lost a European match when playing at home. He has a record of six wins and one draw from seven matches. This winning record shows that there is no team that can beat Real Madrid at their own game.

Another fact about Zidane is that he has won every trophy available in Europe. No other manager has achieved this feat. The only trophy he has not won is the Champions League, but he is close to doing so. If he were to win it next year, he would be the first manager to do so three times.

Finally, a personal anecdote about Zidane: he used to wear number 10 while playing for Madrid. It is believed that he chose this number because it is the same as Alfredo Di Stéfano, the legendary player who helped Real Madrid win its first title in 1959.

Zidane started out as a midfielder but soon became a forward. He played for Madrid's youth teams before making his senior debut in 1995.

Who are the managers who have won the Champions League?

While Paisley led Liverpool to three trophies in five seasons, Ancelotti won three titles and reached four finals with Milan and Real Madrid, while Zidane won three titles in a row with Real Madrid. Seventeen other managers have won the title twice. Of these, only two have done so without lifting any other trophy besides the Champions League: Arrigo Sacchi and Pep Guardiola.

The most successful manager in the history of the competition is Sir Alex Ferguson, who won it six times with Manchester United. Other notable names are Carlo Ancelotti, who won it three times; Jupp Heynckes, who won it twice; and Herbert Brekke, who won it once.

The longest serving manager is Arrigo Sacchi, who managed AC Milan for eleven years from 1983 to 1993. He was followed by Fabio Capello, who had tenures with both Juventus and England before joining Italian club Roma as coach in 1996, where he remained until his death in April 2016 at the age of 76. The current record holder is UEFA President Michel Platini, who has managed French club Saint-Étienne since 1991. He is the second Frenchman to be president of UEFA, after Pierre Fauchard.

There have been nine men and seven women who have managed the team that wins the tournament.

Who was the last English manager to win the league?

Since the inception of the English Premier League in 1992, no English manager has won the championship. In the Premier League's 25-year existence, only nine managers have won it, with Manchester United's former manager, Alex Ferguson of Scotland, winning it 13 times. The other four men to achieve this feat are Arsène Wenger of Arsenal, Jose Mourinho of Chelsea, Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, and Thomas Tuchel of Paris Saint-Germain.

Ferguson retired at the end of the 2018 season, having led United to their 13th title during his final season in charge. He is the longest-serving manager in the history of the club, having taken over from David Moyes in October 2013. His record is unlikely to be beaten as Mourinho will be taking charge for a third time. If he were to win the league again this would make him the most successful manager in the history of Chelsea - surpassing Antonio Conte who managed the club for two seasons before moving on to Juventus.

Mourinho's second spell at Chelsea ended in failure as he could not deliver another title challenge after losing Fergie to United. However, he did lead the club to its first ever Champions League success in 2012-13. After leaving Chelsea following the 2014-15 season, he took charge at Old Trafford again. This time though, he won the league in his first season back at the club.
