Which Premier League football manager would make the best Father Christmas?
What’s certain is they’ll need jolliness, generosity and one cracker of a crudely-photoshopped picture.
Let’s do this.
…to be clear, Eddie this doesn’t mean we think you’re going to get fat.
Always worth a laugh, and with a candy Kane to boot, Spurs’ Santa Poch makes the top five.
The trendy Manchester City man’s style of play is all about possession, which he proved can mean absolutely nothing in their 4-2 defeat to Leicester the other week – and isn’t receiving some meaningless possession what Christmas is really all about?
Zing. Also, Santa doesn’t wear trainers, let’s move on.
The Everton man probably suits the Santa outfit best, but sadly he’s been let down by a tweet he posted earlier this month.
Oh Ronald. Toffees fans were not happy with the controversially red colour of his tree.
Better colour? 😂💙 pic.twitter.com/oiIeJry2aB— Ronald Koeman (@RonaldKoeman) December 1, 2016
It’s too late to rectify this festive fail Ronald. And where’s the blue?
The friendly man from Stuttgart is fun, cheery and as open to giving his best “ho-ho-ho” as anyone, just take a look at him back at Borussia Dortmund.
But that’s not just why Klopp is top. After Wayne Rooney was caught drinking on England duty this year, Klopp showed his support by regaling a press conference with a tale from his time at Mainz – when he was pictured out drinking by the press.
“Nobody saw me because I had a mask,” said Klopp. “It was Santa Claus.”
A charitable act from a Red to a man connected with Manchester United and Everton – and a confession to boot! But Jurgen Klaus still doesn’t nick the top spot…
Father Christmas he was, delivering on the promise of being top at Christmas before bagging the most unlikely Premier League title ever.
Plus who can forget Ranieri’s promise of pizza for Leicester gaining a clean sheet?
What says merry Christmas better than pizza?
From Santa Claudio and all the Premier League Santas – merry Christmas one and all!
