Manchester City's Most Successful Managers 

We rated managers solely on their win percentage in our list of Manchester City's most successful managers. Other variables are not taken into account in this list. On that note, we are going to share with you Manchester City’s most successful managers of all time.

Kevin Keegan [2001-2005] [Win % – 43.75]

According to a blog by, Keegan returned to football on May 24, 2001, as the replacement for Joe Royle at Manchester City, who had just been relegated from the Premier League. Stuart Pearce, Eyal Berkovic, and Ali Benarbia are among the experienced foreign players Keegan has signed. After scoring 108 league goals, City was promoted to Division One the following season.

He signed Nicolas Anelka, Peter Schmeichel, and Marc-Vivien Foé in preparation for his second season as manager (2002–03). Manchester City won the Manchester derby against Liverpool at Anfield and took four points from Manchester United that season, gaining their Premier League status easily by finishing ninth (their previous victory in the Manchester derby was in September 1989).

Mark Hughes [2008-2009] [46.75%]

Mark Hughes arrived at Eastlands in June 2008 as successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson, following a reasonably fruitful spell in charge of Blackburn Rovers. Hughes initially made some astute signings, especially Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta who arrived from Hamburg and Espanyol respectively.

With the additions of Wayne Bridge, Shay Given, Craig Bellamy, and Nigel de Jong in the January transfer window, the club was once again involved, but the season ended in disappointment as City finished 10th, one position lower than Eriksson had achieved the previous season. Although City had a strong home record, they struggled away from Eastlands just like how some people struggle at online casinos.

Roberto Mancini [2009-2013] [59.16%]

Mancini led Manchester City to Champions League and FA Cup success in his first full season at the club in 2010–11.

Mancini led Manchester City to their first Premier League title in 44 years in the 2011–12 season, winning 3–2 with two goals in injury time in what was dubbed "the best match of the best last day of the season in English football history."
