Best German football managers in the Premier League
1. Jürgen Klopp
Klopp moved to Liverpool in 2015 following his successful reign at Borussia Dortmund and the living legacy in the German Bundesliga.
Although Klopp did not become one of the best in the Premier League straight away, he soon developed into one of the most tactically gifted managers in the English league.
So far, Klopp leads the list of German football managers who’s dominated the Premier League by winning major trophies, including the Premier League, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Klopp’s team has been known for its consistency and competition. And the leading factor here remains the high goal ratio per match basis.
2. Thomas Tuchel
Thomas Tuchel is the most impactful German football manager in the English Premier League and who has won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea despite moving to the side more about a quarter into the season.
Tuchel did not make significant changes to the team he met on the ground. But the unthinkable was made using the same old tactics did not seem to fit into the plans of his previous jobs.
Thomas Tuchel has won the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup with Chelsea since 2021.
3. Daniel Farke
Daniel Farke remains a household name in English football following the promotion ticket he won for the club twice in four years. The canaries who weren’t among the big money spenders did so well in the Championship but had less effect in the top flight.
Farke joined Norwich City in 2017 and brought significant changes to the club. The following season saw the club’s return to the Premier League.
But Norwich City’s return to the Premier League after just a year into the relationship between Norwich and Daniel Farke did not last too long following the club’s immediate relegation back to the Championship.
However, Farke secured an immediate return to the Premier League with Norwich City and was subsequently handed the EFL Championship Manager of the Season award.
4. Felix Magath
Felix Magath is one of the best German football managers ever seen. He managed a swat of clubs, including Hamburger SV, VfL Wolfsbane and Schalke 04.
In the Premier League, Felix Magath became the first German football manager to coach a Premier League club after the London club announced his appointment in 2014.
With an announcement accompanied by big expectations, Felix Magath had to work for the survival of Fulham for the following season. However, Fulham did not remain in the top flight at the end of the season with the German in charge.
5. Jan Siewert
Jan Siewert joined Huddersfield Town in 2019. He was in charge of the Premier League club until they were relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.
