Roy Keane Reveals The Best Manager in The Premier League Right Now. Manchester United veteran Roy Keane has chosen Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, as the finest coach in the Premier League. The Premier League is home to some of the world’s top managers. Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool, Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea, Antonio Conte of Tottenham Hotspur, and Marcelo Bielsa of Leeds United are all regarded as some of the greatest in the game.
England also has young managers like Mikel Arteta, Graham Potter, and Patrick Vieira. However, according to Roy Keane, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is a step far above rest of the league. The Manchester United legend has voted Pep Guardiola as the greatest manager in the Premier League, beating out Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
He stated this on Sky Bet’s Driving Home For Christmas:
“I remember we did a game last year, I didn’t write off Man City but I think I said they lost their mojo. And then they won the league and it was like a doddle to them.”
“Obviously I know they put in the hard work, but they won it and United finished second but United were never going to catch them, I’d never bet against Man City now, I’ve just learnt my lesson from last year,” he added.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean Liverpool or Chelsea can’t pip them to the title, but I think Pep is the man, I look at all of the managers I think Pep is the man,” he said.

Roy Keane also addressed the claim that Pep Guardiola’s success is due to the players he has available to him and the money he spends. “I do. People say he’s got the best players, but you still have to manage them, you still have to find a style of play and if you’re going to pick a team to watch it’s going to be Manchester City aren’t you.”
Manchester City, the defending Premier League winners, currently lead the standings. Pep Guardiola’s team has 44 points from 18 games so far. Liverpool, are in second place on the standings, behind Manchester City. The Merseyside club sits three points behind the table-toppers with 41 points.
