48% of players say Chelsea’s Mourinho is the ideal manager. Arsenal’s Wenger gets 8% [FourFourTwo]
FourFourTwo have released some interesting polling data on Wednesday, having canvassed footballers on who they’d like to have as their ideal manager.
FourFourTwo spoke to 123 players in their survey, with the players sourced from the Premier League, the Football League and the Scottish Premier League.
On the subject of which manager the players would most like to play for, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho came out in first place with a whopping 48% of the vote.
Mourinho, who won the Capital One Cup with Chelsea last weekend against Tottenham, has a career record of one trophy every 35 games.
Coming in in second place is former FC Barcelona boss, and current Bayern Munich supremo, Pep Guardiola. The Spaniard collected 31% of the vote.
The Special One and Pep were way ahead of their competition, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger coming third in the poll with 8%.
The Gunners boss was interestingly ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp (6%), who is often cited as a possible successor should Wenger ever leave his post at Arsenal.
West Ham’s Sam Allardyce, who is tipped to part ways with West Ham at the end of the season, impressively accrued 6% of the votes, while England boss Roy Hogdson earned just a 1% rating.
