Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea Football Club in 2003. He has quickly transformed Chelsea into one of the most famous football clubs in the entire world. Chelsea have won two UEFA Champions League titles since Roman Abramovich took over. However, the Russian billionaire has sacked many managers at Stamford Bridge.
The coach of Chelsea as at 2003 was Claudio Ranieri. Chelsea have had 16 different managers since 2003. However, it is important to point out that Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink have managed Chelsea twice. This means that Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink will count as two managers instead of four.

The likes of Jose Antonio Camacho and Carlos Queiroz managed Real Madrid in 2004. Mariano Garcia Remon and Vanderlei Luxemburgo were also appointed in 2004. However, it should be said that Zinedine Zidane has been appointed as the coach of Real Madrid on two occasions. This means that he will only count as one manager.

2. Inter Milan
