- Former Man United boss Jose Mourinho has been omitted from the list of top 20 managers in the world
- Man City handler Guardiola is rated the best tactician in the world as of this moment
- The 50-year-old could lead the Citizens to their first UCL glory at the end of this season
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been rated as the best manager in the world according to the top 20 shortlists by UK football website 90Min.
The Spanish-born tactician stands a chance to lead his Premier League club to their first Champions League glory when they face rivals, Chelsea, later this month.
He has already clinched the EFL Cup and the EPL silverware looks pretty much going back to the Etihad Stadium at the end of this season.
With three English topflight titles and a possible UCL triumph along with other domestic successes, the former Barcelona handler appears fit for the position he has been placed in.
Hansi Flick comes right after Guardiola as the second-best manager in the world following his exploits with Bayern Munich in the 2019-20 season.
He led the Bavarians to win six major titles including the Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup despite taking charge of the club at the beginning of the same season.
Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea, and Zinedine Zidane wrap up the top five best coaches in the world according to the same source.
However, newly appointed Roma boss Jose Mourinho is nowhere to be found among the top 20 and this could be attributed to the fact that he has been sacked by his last few employers over poor results.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City missed the chance to be crowned champions of England on Saturday, May 8, after suffering a 2-1 defeat against big rivals Chelsea in a Premier League tie.
Pep Guardiola and his wards knew before the battle that a win would give them the Premier League title, and they did themselves lots of good by netting the first goal only for them to concede two goals in the second half.
The duel was also a dressing rehearsal for the Champions League final as Manchester City and Chelsea will be facing in Europe's most glamour competition.
