Some time ago, there were rumours that Mauricio Pochettino was set to leave Tottenham and that he was linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur, though currently that doesn't seem likely to happen. But in the space of a month, we have seen two managers return to their former clubs. Massimiliano Allegri returned to Juventus, following the departure of Andrea Pirlo while Carlo Ancelotti returned to Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane's exit.
But apart from these two, there have been a lot of other cases where managers returned to a club after leaving. So below are the names of ten managers who returned to their former club. Enclosed in a bracket beside their name is the name of the club where they returned to. Some of them have more than one club attached to their name.
1. Kenny Dalglish (Liverpool)
2. Fabio Capello (Real Madrid, AC Milan)
3. Kevin Keegan (Newcastle)
4. Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid)
5. Louis Van Gaal (Barcelona)
6. Jose Mourinho (Chelsea)
7. Guus Hiddink (Valencia, PSV, Chelsea)
8. Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus)
9. Claudio Ranieri (Valencia)
10. Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid)
11. Jupp Heycknes (Bayern Munich)
12. Marcello Lippi (Juventus)
13. Harry Redknapp (Portsmouth)
14. Giovanni Trapatoni (Juventus)
Do you see another manager returning to a former club anytime soon?
