Neil Warnock has named his five best-ever Premier League manager in history and number one will surprise you.The 71-year-old former Cardiff City and Crystal Palace coach resign as relegated Premier League club in November after leaving the club second from bottom in the Championship.Warnock was seen as the last of his generation of old-school managers which includes Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger but the 2011 BBC London Sports Personality of the Year who has four decades of experience as a coach.The Sheffield born former winger opinion certainly holds some sway in the game as the veteran manager has once again flirted with controversy, after revealing his picks for the five best managers in Premier League history when he speaks to TalkSport.However, Warnock broke down his top five and gave a little insight into why he felt each manager deserved their place. 5. Jose Mourinho"Jose Mourinho, I think what I like about him is the way that he deals with the media at the most difficult times, but I would still put him number five."4. Sir Alex Ferguson"So I think he's third at the minute but could easily be number one in a couple of years."Fourth, I would probably go with Sir Alex [Ferguson] just in front of Jose Mourinho, because he has done it for longer."I just think he was in an era where it was all about man-management - it wasn't down to all the backroom staff - and Sir Alex was probably the best at that.
