Back in the 80’s and 90’s, Italian football was leading the footballing world. Though there has been a decline in their overall quality of football, their style of play has not changed a bit. The fact that Italian managers have won the UEFA Champions League more times than managers from any other nation, is a testament to their quality and class. That is why we would like to get you through the top 5 Italian managers to have featured in the Premier League.
5. Maurizio Sarri
Maurizio Sarri is the latest Italian to join the English Premier League. Sarri joined Chelsea this season, after passing two seasons with series of some brilliant performance at Napoli. He managed to turn the team from Naples into an efficient attacking force. Sarri proved his abilities by saving a back-to-back Champions league qualification for Napoli. Hope he can do the same with Chelsea, who want to be back in the Champions League
4. Antonio Conte
Antonio Conte is a well-known name in Europe today. After winning Seria A with Juventus, Conte came to the Premier League to show he is the best quality of a manager. Undoubtedly, taking over the Blues and winning the league title in his first season in charge, is always going to be his career highlight. Not many managers can claim to match that achievement.
3. Roberto Mancini

Verso #ItaliaPolonia! Per me sarà doppia emozione: debutto in @euro2020 e ritorno allo Stadio Dall'Ara dove 37 anni fa ho esordito nel calcio professionistico! Non vedo l'ora di ritrovare il calore dei tifosi bolognesi che conosco bene. #NationsLeague #EURO2020 #VivoAzzurro
The current Italy manager, Roberto Mancini, spent three and a half seasons in England with the Manchester City. Mancini was the one who brought the Citizens in the headlines again after many years. He led them to their first league title since 1968, in the 2011-12 season.
