Josep Guardiola is the very first coach ranked No 1.
An informed answer to the everlasting question 'who’s the best football coach in the world?' is now made available thanks to the newly launched Football Coach World Ranking® to be found at www.coachworldranking.com
It’s the world's first ranking of football coaches based on actual performance. The ranking is calculated weekly by the Institute of Football Coaching Statistics; based on the results of 12,000 football matches of the immediate past 52 weeks.
How does it work?
Coaches earn ranking points in the premier leagues and cup tournaments of the world’s top 40 football countries. Additional points can be earned in the 10 most prestigious international cup tournaments, such as UEFA's Champions League or CONMEBOL’s Copa Libertadores.
As not every match is equally important and not every country competition or confederation is equally strong, results are weighed when converted to World Ranking points.
