Report: Klopp, Pep And Frank - How Much Premier League Managers Have Increased The Value of Their Players

Who comes out top, Pep or Klopp?
Who comes out top, Pep or Klopp?

We at BettingOdds.com have conducted a study into which Premier League managers have improved the value of their players the most since being at their respective clubs, and how they compare to their rivals.

Whatever happens, the fundamental 2021/22 Premier League story is ultimately once again about the battle between behemoths Manchester City and Liverpool for the title. We don’t know how much longer we will get to enjoy the saga of Pep Guardiola versus Jürgen Klopp on the sidelines, but the debate between which manager is better - and of course finding reasons to debilitate the alternative argument - will rage on regardless. 

Based on the value of the players when either the manager or the player arrived at the club, to the value of when they left or to the present day, we have worked out which managers have created the biggest increase and decrease in player market value, as an indicator of squad and individual player improvement.

However, for a fair result, this report has studied the current Premier League managers who have been at their respective clubs for longer than two years. At the time of writing these are Sean Dyche (Burnley), Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Thomas Frank (Brentford), Ralph Hasenhüttl (Southampton), Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City), Graham Potter (Brighton & Hove Albion), Mikel Arteta (Arsenal), and David Moyes (West Ham United).

Guardiola has taken charge of an initial £962.10m worth of player, and raised it to £1,062.92m, for a total increase of £100.82m. Klopp however has received an initial £876.52m in player according to market value, and has increased it to £1,046.84m, an increase of £170.32m. When looking at Total Player Market Value Increase as a Percentage, Klopp also wins this battle, improving the value of his players by 19.4% to Guardiola’s 10.5%. Both, however, pale in comparison to Thomas Frank at Brentford, whose players have increased in value by 321.3%

The results have been organised into the following categories:

  • Total Market Value £ Increase/Decrease of Players Since Manager Arrival
  • Total Player Market Value Increase as a Percentage
