Most football managers will never get their day in the sunshine. Major trophy wins are just a pipe dream that only a comparatively select few ever get to experience.

While a tiny percentage bask in the light, the vast majority survive in the shadow of the management merry go round, hoping for a bit of time to build something worthwhile.

The managers on our list were given the time and the clubs reaped the rewards for their patience. Even number 1 on our list was close to the sack, football would look quite different if the unthinkable had happened.

Here we take a look at the most successful club managers of all time, some of them are nowhere near finished yet!
