Overrated managers

Got two for consideration Graeme Souness who seemed to be very good at losing the dressing room !
Brendan Rodgers who always did well with inherited teams (not counting his success in jockland as it was a 1 horse race) but never built his own winning squads some very poor signings imo
 
What the manager who has won 12 major trophies including the league twice in Germany against the might of Bayern Munich and the PL against a Gulf state own club and without him our top flight would have been as boring as it has been so many years in Scotland.
Also twice won coach of the year !!.

You must be having a laugh.😂
Plenty of managers have won trophies. Di Matteo won the Champions League. Doesn’t make him a great manager. My point is over rated. They way they talk about him in the same breath as the ‘greats’ is embarrassing.

You also make it out like he’s done it on a shoestring. They spent silly money at Liverpool as well, some people seem to forget that.
 
Carlo Ancelotti. Bailed out by getting on with the players at Real Madrid, Bayern, PSG, Chelsea, done nothing anywhere where the players aren’t the best in the league with Napoli, Everton. Yeah, he did well with Berlusconi money at Milan, but that was 15 years ago.

Klopp's achievements in Germany are far greater than what he's done with Liverpool and he wasn't spending silly money there.

Anyway back on topic my overrated manager is Pochettino, he's not terrible but I have no idea why Chelsea were so keen to hire him.
 
Steve Bruce, Kevin Keegan, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney

On the flip side of that the Hammers fans clamouring to get rid of Moyes makes me laugh. I wonder if he ever regrets taking the Man U job.
 
Always thought Darren Ferguson was over rated, but always find a way home to Peterborough.
On the big front Thomas Tuchel, but his trophies at PSG/ Chelsea / Bayern tell a different story so what do I know
 
Erm, well that’s only three clubs and the titles still had to be won…. it sure wasn’t luck he managed it in five different leagues
 
There was that world cup winning captain who managed Southend , also that Liverpool legend that managed Southend ,the two Redknap managers that he introduced to RM that managed Southend .
