Brian Clough

As a player for Middlesbrough and Sunderland, Brian Clough was one of the most prolific goalscorers of all time, with 251 league goals in 274 games, but it was as a manager that he became best known. He took two unfashionable clubs, Derby County and Nottingham Forest, to the league title. At Forest, he also won two successive European Cups and four League Cups. He retired from management in 1993, and is widely believed to be the greatest manager England never had.
