Five Legendary British managers we’d love to see in today’s Premier League, including Herbert Chapman, Liverpool icon & new nemeses for Mourinho

Bill Shankly

Imagine if Bill Shankly—the founding father of Liverpool FC—were to be dropped into the modern Premier League.

He’d probably hate some things; the famous socialist would doubtless be disgusted with the disconnect that exists between fans and players today.

However, maybe this is something Bill could transform.

Indeed, he insisted that Liverpool fans were privileged to represent the city and the fans, and had well-defined ideas about how players should conduct themselves.

Imagine Shankly passing by the boot room, walking into the Liverpool dressing room, only to find Mario Balotelli lighting a firework in the corner…maybe it’s not such a good idea after all!
