Giovanni Trapattoni and Unai Emery, record three-time winners

The UEFA Cup was a European association football competition contested from 1972 to 2009. In 2009–10 season its name was changed to UEFA Europa League.

English manager Bill Nicholson led Tottenham Hotspur to victory in the inaugural final of the contest in all-English encounter against Wolverhampton Wanderers. For the first 25 years of the competition, the final was contested over two legs, one at each participating club's stadium, but in 1998, Luigi Simoni led Internazionale to victory over Lazio in the competition's first single-legged final held at a neutral venue, the Parc des Princes in Paris.

Only seven managers have won the competition on more than one occasion. Three-time winner Giovanni Trapattoni led Juventus to victory in 1977, Internazionale in 1991, and Juventus once again in 1993, and Unai Emery won three consecutive editions of UEFA Europa League in 2014, 2015 and 2016, all with Sevilla. Luis Molowny led Real Madrid to consecutive Cup wins in 1985 and 1986, a feat emulated by fellow Spaniard Juande Ramos who managed Sevilla to victory in both the 2006 and 2007 UEFA Cup Finals. Rafael Benítez became the first manager to win the competition one time as UEFA Cup in 2004 and one time as UEFA Europa League in 2013, a feat later achieved by José Mourinho, who won the UEFA Cup with Porto in 2003 and the UEFA Europa League with Manchester United in 2017. Argentine Diego Simeone won in 2012 and 2018, both times with Atlético Madrid.

Spanish managers have won the title 10 times. Recent finals have been dominated by Spanish managers, with eight wins between 2004 and 2016. Eight managers have won the title in charge of teams from a country other than their own; the most recent of these was Argentine Diego Simeone, as manager of Spanish club Atlético Madrid.
