Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger and former Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, missed out on top 10 places, as France Football announced their 50 greatest managers ever on Tuesday.
The top spot went to legendary Dutchman, Rinus Michels, who is credited with creating ‘Total Football’.
Michels, who died in 2005, took the crown following a 32-year managerial career that saw him win the European Cup with Ajax, La Liga with Barcelona and the European Championship with Holland in 1988.
Ex-United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, came in second. The Scot won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, five League Cups and two Champions League titles during his time at Old Trafford.
But it was Wenger’s exemption from the top 30 that caused the biggest stir on social media.
The Frenchman guided Arsenal to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and five Community Shields during his 22-year reign.
