Although a great manager and the most successful manager in the Premier League, former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t start his career as Manchester United boss with much fanfare.
Antonio Conte has taken the Premier League by storm in just his first season in charge of Chelsea. According to stats provided by View From The Dugout, Conte has an impressive win ratio of 79% and it well dwarfs Ferguson’s record over the last decade, as well as other Premier League manager.
Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex gets the closest – but is still well short – at 74%. The Scot achieved that figure in 2008/09, 2011/12 and 2012/13 – all seasons in which Manchester United won the title. Ferguson’s overall win percentage over the last decade stands at 70.8%.
Pep hasn’t fared well, as he has a win percentage of 61% from his 28 top-flight games so far. His two predecessors, Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini, both recorded better records during their tenures with the pair at 61.3%.
Last season, Liverpool manager had a win ratio of 65%, and this season he has a win ratio of 55%.
Tottenham’s boss Mauricio Pochettino is currently enjoying a win ratio of 61%, while Jose Mourinho is on 52%.
During Chelsea’s struggles last season, Jose Mourinho endured the worst win ratio in his career, clocking about 25% before eventually getting sacked.
Ferguson’s recent comments about Chelsea only buttress the fact that he’s worried about the dynasty Conte is building.
