Klopp is a bright, young and innovative manager. Having already taken his young, exciting, counter attacking Borussia Dortmund to the Champions League Final two years ago, you can expect the 45-year-old manager to make many more finals in his time.

4. Arsene Wenger

Wenger finally managed to break his eight-year trophy dry spell last season. Although many people saw him as underachieving in that time, he was managing a club more focused on financial stability. We also must not forget his record breaking, unbeaten Premier League season in 2004. He will undoubtedly go down in managerial history.

Ancelotti may have had recent success in his first season at Real Madrid, winning the Champions League, but he has had much more success than that in the past. He won two Champions League while managing AC Milan and did the domestic double with Chelsea in 2010. Ancelotti is definitely in the top three current managers.

2. Pep Guardiola

Some argue that Guardiola's achievements are down to the quality of the clubs he has managed. However, his Barcelona side was arguably the best ever club team, and in his first year at Bayern Munich he won the Bundesliga by 19 points. At 43 you can be assured there will be many more trophies to come.

The special one is without a doubt the No.1 manager in the world. Even after a dry season last year with Chelsea, you can expect him to come back with at least one trophy next year. Mourinho has won two Champions Leagues, one with underdogs Porto, and he has also set the points record in both the Premier League and La Liga.
