The ten best managers in world football without a job have been ranked

France v USA: Quarter Final  - 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup France

There are plenty of football fans around the world that think their club needs a new manager.

Arsenal supporters are perhaps the most relevant demographic at the moment, slowly growing tired of Unai Emery and wondering whether they've actually depreciated since Arsene Wenger's exit.

But the poor Gooners aren't alone in their concerns with Tottenham and Manchester United also just a few bad results away from losing faith in Mauricio Pochettino and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

As we're all aware, though, a manager should never be sacked for the sake of it and finding a worthy replacement is never easy in a busy coaching market.

Just ask Jose Mourinho. The 'Special One' has been twiddling his thumbs since his United sacking in December and has gone almost a year without finding a job befitting of his trophy record.

Top 10 managers out of work

But the Portuguese isn't the only high-quality manager who is looking for a new position and the team at Bleacher Report have drawn attention to this by compiling a top ten.

Not only have they highlighted some of the stellar coaches out there, but they've also ranked them from worst to best - we've hypothesised which job would suit them best.

The full list can be seen down below and bear in mind that Luis Enrique has not been included because of his decision to step away from coaching for personal reasons.

10. Javi Gracia

Perfect for: Real Betis

His Watford career might have ended with a whimper, but there are still plenty of positives that potential employers can draw from Gracia's early days in England and time with Malaga.

Stoke City v Watford - Premier League

9. Roger Schmidt

Perfect for: AC Milan

Falling off the radar after two years with Beijing Guoan doesn't diminish the flashes of quality that came with Schmidt's tenures at RB Salzburg and Bayer Leverkusen.


8. Quique Setien

Perfect for: Barcelona

With a philosophy that's straight from the mind of Pep Guardiola, perhaps Setien could transfer the glittering performances he orchestrated at Real Betis to Barcelona one day.

7. Luciano Spalletti

Perfect for: AC Milan 

Things didn't quite work out for Spalletti during his two years at Inter Milan, but there can be no doubting his pedigree as a top-class coach after spells with AS Roma and Zenit St. Petersburg.


6. Marcelino

Perfect for: Tottenham or Everton

Marcelino is destined for the Premier League in the next couple of years, surely? The Spaniard's stock remains incredibly high despite his head-scratching dismissal from Valencia in September.

5. Ralf Rangnick

Perfect for: Manchester United

Could this be the man to turn things around at Old Trafford? Well, you never know, because Rangnick seems to have the Midas touch right now and has been a huge asset to RB Leipzig.


4. Laurent Blanc

Perfect for: Manchester United or Bayern Munich

Despite not having taken the reins of a club in over three years, Blanc remains interested in a return and his quiet successes with France and Paris Saint-Germain could lure big clubs in.


3. Arsene Wenger

Perfect for: Barcelona

The more time that passes since Wenger's Arsenal departure, the more unlikely it seems that he'll return. Yet the man himself remains keen and don't be surprised if one of the offers tickles his fancy.

Huddersfield Town v Arsenal - Premier League

2. Massimiliano Allegri

Perfect for: Manchester United

A serial winner at Juventus and now a manager being linked with every vacant post imaginable, but for good reason. Expect to see Allegri in the hot-seat of a European juggernaut very soon.

Juventus v Atalanta BC - Serie A

1. Jose Mourinho

Perfect for: Tottenham or Arsenal

Criticise Mourinho all you like, the man wins trophies. Mourinho has been biding his time by rejecting 'lesser' jobs and it seems just a matter before the Portuguese is back doing what he loves.


So, it's fair to say there are some big names as well as hidden gems looking for their next job in management.

There might not be any major vacancies at this early stage of the season, but don't be surprised if one of the aforementioned names finishes 2019-20 with both feet firmly in the limelight.
