List of UEFA club competition winning managers

Giovanni Trapattoni has won a total of seven UEFA competition titles, the same as Alex Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti. He is also the only one alongside Udo Lattek to have won the three major European competitions.

This is a list of UEFA club competition winning football managers. It includes victories in the European Cup and UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, the UEFA Cup and Europa League, the UEFA Intertoto Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.

Italians Giovanni Trapattoni and Carlo Ancelotti, and Scot Alex Ferguson are the most successful managers, claiming seven titles each. As of August 2017, Italian managers have won more tournaments than any other nationality, having secured 46 titles, while Spanish managers are in a distant second place with 38 competition victories.

Although no manager has ever won all of these competitions, Trapattoni is the only manager to have claimed the title of five different confederation tournaments. Trapattoni and German Udo Lattek are the only managers to have won at least once the three seasonal UEFA competitions: the European Cup, the Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Cup.

While the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup is considered to be the predecessor to the UEFA Cup, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) does not recognise it officially, and therefore successes in this competition are not included in this list.[1] Also excluded are the unofficial 1972 European Super Cup,[2] and the Club World Cup, a FIFA competition.
