Pairs Of England Managers

Two former Ipswich managers went on to manage England – Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson.

Two former England managers have also managed both Newcastle and Fulham – Sir Bobby Robson and Kevin Keegan.

Two former England managers have also managed Manchester City – Kevin Keegan and Sven Goran Eriksson.

Two other managers of England have also managed Leeds United – Don Revie and Terry Venables.  Terry Venables and another former England manager, Glenn Hoddle, also managed Tottenham Hotspur.

Terry Venables was also once co-manager of Middlesbrough, a club also previously managed by Steve McClaren, another former England manager.

Two former England managers have gone on to manage Wolverhampton Wanderers – Graham Taylor and Glenn Hoddle.

Bobby Robson and Terry Venables also both managed Barcelona.

Ron Greenwood and the incumbent are the remaining two to manage England since 1963.

Sir Alf Ramsey (with Ispwich in 1962) and Don Revie (with Leeds Utd in 1969 and 1974) are the only two England managers to have led a club to the title in England (although Eriksson has won titles in Sweden, Portugal and Italy, while Sir Bobby Robson led Porto to two titles in Portugal, and Terry Venables won the Spanish title with Barcelona). Ironically, Revie is probably the most reviled England manager of all.

Capello is probably the most successful club manager ever appointed England manager.

    … AND to stretch it a little I admit(!) two former Palace managers have managed England. Terry Venables and Peter Taylor. I couldn’t miss that as they were both at Selhurst when I had a trial there!

    And don’t forget Man City actually had THREE England managers… Keegan, Eriksson and Joe Mercer.

    I haven’t included caretaker England managers, so strictly speaking, Peter Taylor and Joe Mercer don’t count.

    If I included caretaker managers, Leeds Utd would have had two as well – Don Revie and Howard Wilkinson.

    Speaking of Peter Taylor, watch him score two for Crystal Palace away to Chelsea in the 5th round of the FA Cup in 1976 (at 4 mins 2 secs).
