Jose Mourinho delivered the Spanish title to Real Madrid.
Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United
“I know Alan Pardew and Brendan Rodgers will push him, but Ferguson has achieved a lot this season with very little.” – Warren Barton
Pep Guardiola, FC Barcelona
“There was a target on his team’s back all season, but he never looked fazed and distracted, and nor did his team. He has had exceptional players, for sure, but he has hit all the right buttons.” – Rob Stone
Juergen Klopp, Borussia Dortmund
“A poor start to the season had the Bundesliga win in 2011 looking like a one-off. But the team bounced back and even though they did not make it through the Champions League group stage they did go on an undefeated tear in the German League.” - Christian Miles
Jose Mourinho, Real Madrid
“Beat Barcelona when they had to. Secured the La Liga crown. Turned a team full of haughty stars into a hard-nosed, winning unit. The only man who seems to always be able to rise above the noise that surrounds soccer and can deliver results.” – Jamie Trecker
Antonio Conte, Juventus
Achieved promotion to Serie A with with Siena and has now proved himself at the highest level in his first season at Juventus by bringing the scudetto back to Turin for the first time since the Calciopoli scandal in 2006.
Arsene Wenger, Arsenal
“He had to hear rumors all year long, especially at the beginning when Arsenal was at its weakest, but he took a squad devoid of some of its best players because of the economics of the sport and still managed to guide them to third place in the standings and a coveted Champions League spot.” - Jorge Mondaca
Alan Pardew, Newcastle
“Pardew has done a superb job at Newcastle this year. He signed players that suit his system and style of play and has them challenging for a UCL position when many expected them to be mid-table at best.” - Keith Costigan
