6 Coaches Who Have Had At Least Two Managerial Spells At One Club

Telling a player what to do on the pitch is an important aspect of football as no matter how good a team is, without a well coordinated tactical plan, chances are they will struggle to flourish. It is in the spirit of this that clubs hire managers, one that will deliver instructions to the players on how the team's objectives can be realized.

However, while some of these coaches had only one spell at a particular club, there were those whose reputation and good deeds earned them double managerial stints.

Take a look;

1- Jose Mourinho (Chelsea)

He is among the most successful managers in the history of football and recently celebrated his one thousand game as coach. During his early managerial days, Jose Mourinho took charge of Chelsea between 2004-07 where he won two Premier league titles. After six years away from the club, he returned in 2013 and once again lifted another Premier league title before finally departing in 2015.

2- Carlos Ancelotti (Real Madrid)

The Italian tactician first arrived Santiago Bernabeu in 2013 and guided the club to their 10th Champions league title in 2014. Ancelotti was sacked in 2015, but just this past summer, he was rehired by the Florentino Perez.

3- Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid)

He was an assistant under Carlos Ancelotti and a year after the Italian left, Zidane took charge of his former club. Under him, Los Blancos won three consecutive Champions league titles between 2016-18 and a La Liga title in 2017. He left the club in 2018 and came back in 2019 to win another La Liga title before taking his final bow at the end of last season. Real Madrid is the only club he has coached as a manager.

4- Allegri Massimiliano (Juventus)

Allegri became a popular figure at Juventus especially after leading the club to five successive Serie A titles from his first arrival in 2014 to his departure in 2019. However, following the dismissal of Andrea Pirlo last season for a dismal performance, Allegri was brought back to Turin.

5- Guus Hiddink (Chelsea)

He may have only been around on a provisional basis, but Hiddink had two spells at Stamford Bridge, first in 2009 and another in 2015-16. Under his management, Chelsea won the 2009 FA Cup.

6- Louis Van Gaal (Barcelona)

The 70 year old first took charge of Barcelona in 1997 where he won four titles among which included two La Liga before departing in 2000. In 2002 he was rehired and ended up spending the rest of the 2002-03 campaign before finally exiting the club.
