Who is Liverpool's best manager?

11. Roy Hodgson (2010 – 2011)

With a 41% win rate, Hodgson is probably our worst manager to date. Sorry Roy, but you did nearly get us relegated.

10. Graeme Souness (1991 – 1994)

Known as Liverpool’s captain and our favourite Sky Sports pundit, Graeme Souness is probably one of Liverpool’s least memorable managers. Although he had a 41% win rate, we did in fact win Liverpool’s fifth FA Cup under the Scotsman’s management.

9. Brendan Rodgers (2012 – 2015)

Ninth place goes to Brendan Rodgers, who was quite an okay manager until he was “let go” in 2015. However, his 50% success rate did help Liverpool get back into the Champions League and almost win us our nineteenth title (2013-14 season).

8. Roy Evans (1994 – 1998) 

Roy Evans can be considered a good manager if you consider his 50% success rate. He also helped Liverpool win their fifth League Cup. However, the “Spice Boys” era spread rumours that Evans could not control the players, which led to Liverpool having joint management with Houllier and Evans. Evans left in 1998, leaving Houllier in charge.

7.  Jurgen Klopp (2015 – )

Our current manager had his worked cut out for him when he first joined in 2015, but look at us now. Six time European champions and almost nineteen-times League champions. Klopp has also managed to get us into two Champions League finals as well as earning Liverpool their fourth Super Cup. He has a 51% success rate, but will increase if Liverpool continue to get wins.

6. Rafa Benitez (2004 – 2010)

Ask any Liverpool fan about Benitez and there would not be a bad word spoken about him. Manager for six years, Benitez won the Reds’ fifth European title, their third UEFA Super cup and their seventh a FA Cup. He had a success rate of 55%.

5. Joe Fagan (1983 – 1985)

Fagan’s two year spell may not seem much, but the scouser did have an impact on Liverpool’s history. With 53% success rate, Fagan won the League, the League cup and Liverpool’s fourth European trophy.

4. Sir Kenny Dalglish (1985 – 1991; 2011 – 2012)

Dalglish is a player and manager who will forever be a Liverpool legend. His first term as club manager was between 1985 – 1991, where he had quite a successful career. The Scotsman helped Liverpool earn 3 League titles and 2 FA Cups. He came to our aid again in 2011, where he managed to save us from relegation and win the League Cup. Overall, he has a 58% win rate.

3. Gerard Houllier (1998 – 2004)

Liverpool’s third most decorative manager, Houllier had left quite a legacy at Anfield. Within six years, he won 6 trophies for the club, including two League Cups, one Super Cup and an FA Cup. Houllier had a 51% success rate, winning 165 League games in total.

2. Bob Paisley (1974 – 1983)

Liverpool’s most successful manager Bob Paisley takes the second spot. With a 57% win rate, the Englishman helped Liverpool accrue 5 League titles, 3 League cups and 3 European trophies. He also managed to win the European Super Cup in 1977.

1. Bill Shankly (1959 – 1974)

Some might argue that Paisley should get the number one slot, but I think this will always belong to Shankly.  Paisley wouldn’t even have a legacy without Shankly, as it was the Scottish manager who made it possible for Liverpool to even play in the Division 1 League. With a 52% win rate, he gave Liverpool 4 League titles, 2 FA Cups and 1 UEFA Cup.
