The Premier League’s Spanish coaches

GSFN takes a look at the six Spanish coaches currently working in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola

Guardiola has taken charge of 396 matches, making him the most experienced of the Spanish head coaches working in the Premier League. He was the first from Spain to arrive in the Premier League and has won the league four times with Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta

Arteta started his managerial career in December 2019. He has coached 171 games (100 wins, 27 draws and 44 defeats) and, after winning the FA Cup in 2019-20 and the Community Shield a few months later, he is edging closer to lifting his first Premier League title with Arsenal.

Unai Emery

Emery took charge of 78 games at Arsenal and has overseen 17 games with his current club, Aston Villa. He finished 5th in the 2018-19 season with Arsenal.

Javi Gracia

Gracia was in charge at Watford for 66 games (25 wins, 13 draws and 28 defeats). He recently joined Leeds and is hoping to keep the Yorkshire club in the top flight.

Julen Lopetegui

The former Sevilla boss has 18 matches under his belt with Wolves, who are just above the danger zone. His record so far in the Premier League is 6 wins, 5 draws and 7 defeats.

Rubén Sellés

The Southampton coach has picked up just two wins from his first nine matches with the struggling Saints, who are rock bottom of the league.

Luis Enrique is the latest Spanish coach being linked with a move to the Premier League, having talks with Chelsea before they appointed Frank Lampard as caretaker boss on Thursday.

Fellow Spaniard Bruno Saltor briefly looked after first-team affairs at Stamford Bridge after the dismissal of Graham Potter.
