Who was the last English manager to win the league? Premier League winning managers includes no English bosses

We are nearing the end of yet another thrilling Premier League campaign - two months from the final matchday and still with plenty of uncertainty around who will claim the famous title.

The battle is once again between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola - Germany v Spain - while the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Mikel Arteta, Ralf Rangnick, David Moyes and Antonio Conte compete for the top four.

It’s an exciting race full of world class managers - but not an English boss to be seen.

West Ham’s Moyes is the only Brit in the top half of the Premier League table, while the Englishmen have even less success than their European counterparts.

This has been a similar story in the Premier League ever since it was founded in 1992.

In it’s 30 years of existence, we have never witnessed an English manager win it.

Only nine managers have won it since 1992 - Sir Alex Ferguson (Scotland), Arsene Wenger (France), Jose Mourinho (Portugal), Pep Guardiola (Spain), Jurgen Klopp (Germany), Kenny Dalglish (Scotland), Antonio Conte (Italy), Roberto Mancini (Italy) and Claudio Ranieri (Italy).

The English’s last success came before the Premier League was founded.

Who was the last English manager to win the league?

The last time an English manager won the league was in the 1991-92 season - the year before the Premier League began.

Sheffield-born Howard Wilkinson led Leeds United to the First Division title during that season as they finished on 82 points - four points above second place Manchester United.

It was Wilkinson’s second league title since he joined the Whites in 1988.

Other English managers to win the league

Prior to the Premier League, it was mainly English managers who would win the First Division.

Prior to Howard Wilkinson, the likes of Howard Kendall, Bob Paisley and Brian Clough lifted the trophy.

This comes as no surprise considering England’s top flight didn’t welcome a foreign boss until Jozef Venglos joined Aston Villa in 1990.

Arsene Wenger was then the first manager from overseas to win the league in 1997-98.
