Best German football managers 2024



Germany houses some of the best football coaches globally, from Joachim Löw to Jürgen Klopp and Ralf Rangnick, Hansi Flick and the new generation Julian Nagelsmann.


  • German football coaches are rated high, and some of these coaches are in charge of some of the biggest football clubs in the world.


  • There’s one quite exciting aspect of German football managers, which is utilising the Gegenpressing style of play.


  • The Top 10 German Football managers include Jurgen Klopp, Julian Nagelsmann and Christian Streich.

Here is the full list:


1. Jürgen Klopp

Jürgen Klopp is undoubtedly one of the best German soccer managers out there. His philosophy and style of play have accelerated his career.


Moving up from Mainz 05 to Borussia Dortmund, Klopp ended Liverpool FC’s 30-year wait in the 2019/20 season when his brilliant tactics helped the club lift its first-ever title since the rebrand to the Premier League in 1992.


Four years after following a series of revivals in many areas at Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp did the unthinkable when he won three major trophies in the 2019 football season, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.


The following season, Klopp outclassed the firepower of Manchester City, which had already denied him the opportunity to win the league title and ended Liverpool FC’s 30-year wait for the title.

He is undoubtedly one of the best football managers in the modern history of Liverpool and one of the best German football managers. He’s the best-performing German coach in the Premier League, with five significant trophies.


2. Hansi Flick

Flick’s role as the assistant of the German Men’s National Team heralds his appointment as assistant to Niko Kovac at Bayern Munich.


However, his transition to the top job at Bayern Munich brought back the old days of Bayern Munich’s European dominance.


In 2020, Hansi Flick won seven major trophies, including the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.


3. Thomas Tuchel

In 2021, Thomas Tuchel won three trophies (UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup) and was runners-up in the FA Cup with Chelsea.


He rose to prominence when he was appointed at Mainz 05. He taught possessing football to technically inferior players and made them look better against the big sides by dominating the opposition half with more effective counter-attacks.


Although his role did not amount to a trophy-winning campaign, he quickly got himself on the map of talented managers.


At PSG, Thomas Tuchel won seven significant trophies (Ligue 1 twice, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and two Trophée des Champions). He also guided the club to runners-up in the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League.


4. Joachim Löw

Joachim Löw is undoubtedly one of the most excellent German football managers. He’s been on the coaching scene since 1995.


Joachim Löw took the German team to runners-up in the 2008 European Football Championship and third place twice in 2012 and 2016, respectively.


Although Löw wasn’t successful in the European continent, even though he was close to winning the European Championship, he took the team to an impactful outing in the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2017 and emerged as the winner.


At the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, the German Men’s National Team humiliated Brazil 7-1. And went on to win the trophy at the expense of the Argentine after a previous attempt in 2010 in South Africa brought a bronze medal.


5. Marco Rose


Marco Rose is a talented football coach whose style of play has attracted commendations from the German football community.


He started his career with Mainz 05 II as an assistant; Rose eventually got the opportunity to lead a team when he was appointed Lokomotive Leipzig’s new trainer.


He then moved to Austria, where he won the Austrian Bundesliga twice and the Austrian Cup after winning the UEFA Youth League with Salzburg Youth Team.


Marco Rose’s teams have always been a joy to watch due to their impressive style, especially during his tenure at Borussia Mönchengladbach.


6. Ralf Rangnick

A football executive and manager, Ralf Rangnick has excelled in both areas over the years, from aiding the growth of RB Leipzig to a more advanced role at Lokomotiv Moscow and Manchester United.


In his portfolio, what stands out the most is his role in developing RB Leipzig in what is currently seen as a deviation from the traditional 5+1 rule that separates the club from the rest.

7. Julian Nagglesman

Julian Nagglesman became one of the youngest German football managers of the modern era. The German, who had little or no active playing career, switched to football management at age 21.


Youth stints at FC Augsburg and 1899 Hoffenheim herald the appointment of Julian Nagglesman to the assistant role of the 1899 Hoffenheim senior team and later as head coach of the club.


Although Nagglesman did not have the best managerial experience, he could be seen dishing out instructions that became more effective in the club’s style of play and approach to the game.


At 28, Nagelsmann was appointed head coach of Hoffenheim 2016–17 season, making him the youngest coach in Bundesliga history. He also holds the record as the youngest Bundesliga coach to reach the 100-match milestone.


He became the youngest coach in history to win a UEFA Champions League knockout tie when his side secured a 4–0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.


8. Christian Streich

Although he is not the trophy-winning coach, Christian Streich is well respected in the German football community due to his approach to the game.


Currently, the head coach of SC Freiburg, Streich, has successfully kept the club at the top without many struggles. His immediate success at the club led to his recognition in the German football scene as a “cult figure” and a “football philosopher”.


Christian Streich has been able to build a brand even though he’s not won a major trophy since he started professional coaching in 2011. He was voted Coach of the Year by Goal!, an official Bundesliga Magazine, at the end of the 2011–12 football season in the country.


Streich has made SC Freiburg a solid and formidable team in the Bundesliga. He has also helped preserve the club’s top-flight status since the 2016–17 season.
