According to Coach Reputation Ranking's study, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is the best coach in the world after this season after Real Madrid's Zidane dropped to the third spot in latest rankings.
Guardiola became the first manager in English football history to complete a domestic treble, helping City to win the Premier League, EFL Carabao Cup and FA Cup.
In the league, his club clinched the title with 98 points, which is the second highest points total in history. Manchester City also reached the quarter finals of the Champions League only to be beaten by Tottenham.
In the rankings, Guardiola is obviously top with 82.8 out of a possible 100 points. In second place is Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp on 80 points.
Zidane claimed the third spot with 77.6 points and he was followed by former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri (75.7) and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino (73.6).
"Despite the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League and the increasing competitiveness in the English game, Guardiola has managed to hold onto his place in the top 5. Manchester City's consistency and his great influence in the world of football are two of the factors which have enabled him to end the season as the most highly reputed coach right now", explained Mario G.
