Football: 14 Managers Who Returned To Their Club After Leaving

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.
