Zinedine Zidane has an incredible trophy haul as Real Madrid boss – but how does he compare to other managers in Europe’s top five leagues?
We’ve looked at the managers who have won the most trophies since the 48-year-old Zidane entered senior management at the start of 2016.
10. Carlo Ancelotti – Three trophies
Ancelotti is one the most successful managers of all time and won the Bundesliga title and two DFL Supercups while in charge of Bayern Munich. The Italian failed to add to his trophy cabinet during his 18 months at Napoli and was appointed manager of Everton in December 2019.
9. Jose Mourinho – Three trophies
Mourinho won the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League in his debut season at Manchester United, but he was sacked in December 2018. The 57-year-old took the reins at Tottenham in November 2019 and will be hoping to win their first trophy since 2008 next season.
8. Niko Kovac – Four trophies
Kovac beat Bayern Munich with Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2018 DFB-Pokal final before replacing Jupp Heynckes as Bayern manager. He won the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and DFL-Supercup at the Allianz Arena but was sacked after just 18 months in charge.
7. Luis Enrique – Four trophies
Enrique left his role as Barcelona manager in 2017 and won La Liga, the Supercopa de Espana and two Copa del Rey titles during his final 18 months in charge. The 50-year-old was named coach of the Spanish national team in 2018 and is yet to win a trophy on the international stage.
6. Jurgen Klopp – Four trophies
Klopp was appointed as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and had to wait nearly four years for his first trophy with the club. After winning the Champions League in 2019, the 53-year-old added the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League to his CV in 2019-20.
5. Thomas Tuchel – Five trophies
Tuchel replaced Klopp at Borussia Dortmund in 2015 and won the 2016-17 DFB Pokal in his final game in charge. He took a year out of management before taking the Paris Saint-Germain job in 2018, and he has won two Ligue 1 titles and two Trophee des Champions with the French side.
4. Unai Emery – Eight trophies
Emery won the Europa League for a third time with Sevilla in 2016 before succeeding Laurent Blanc at Paris Saint-Germain. He then won Ligue 1, two Coupe de France titles, two Coupe de la Ligue titles and two Trophee des Champions during his two years with the French side. The Spaniard failed to win a trophy during his 18 months in charge at Arsenal and was sacked in November 2019.
3. Massimiliano Allegri – Eight trophies
Allegri enjoyed a trophy laden spell with Juventus, winning four Serie A titles, three Coppa Italia’s and a Supercoppa Italiana during his final three-and-a-half years in charge. The Italian has been without a team since leaving the Serie A side at the end of the 2018-19 season.
2. Pep Guardiola – 10 trophies
Guardiola won the Bundesliga and the DFK Pokal during his final year in charge at Bayern Munich before moving to Manchester City in 2016. After a trophyless first season at the Etihad, he has since won two Premier League titles, three League Cups, an FA Cup and two Community Shields.
1. Zinedine Zidane – 11 trophies
Zidane took his first steps into management with Real Madrid Castilla and eventually replaced Rafael Benitez as the first-team manager in January 2016.
The 48-year-old won La Liga, the Supercopa de Espana, two UEFA Super Cups, two FIFA Club World Cups and three Champions League titles before resigning in 2018.
After taking a 10-month break, he returned to the Bernabeu in March 2019 and won La Liga and the Supercopa de Espana in 2019-20.
