List of Copa Libertadores winning managers

This is a list of Copa Libertadores winning football managers. Uruguayan manager Roberto Scarone led Peñarol to success in the inaugural Copa Libertadores finals in 1960 and repeated the feat the following season. Argentinian clubs and managers dominated the competition in the late 1960s and 1970s, winning 12 out of 15 tournaments from 1964 to 1978. In the 1990s Brazilian clubs and managers dominated the competition with six wins from 1992 to 1999, after which the second period of Argentinian dominance began, with seven wins in the period from 2000 to 2009.

As of 2009, Argentinian managers have been the most successful, winning 24 tournaments in total, followed by Brazilians with 13 wins and Uruguayans with 10 titles. On only five occasions the tournament was won by foreign managers (Croatian Mirko Jozić led Chilean side Colo-Colo to victory in 1991, Argentinian Edgardo Bauza won the tournament with Ecuadorean club LDU Quito, and all three wins by Paraguayan side Olimpia came under foreign managers - Uruguayan Luis Cubilla led them to victory in 1979 and 1990, and Argentinian Nery Pumpido in 2000). Mirko Jozić is also the only manager from outside South America to have won the competition.

The most successful manager is Carlos Bianchi who won the tournament on four occasions, leading Vélez Sársfield to success in 1994, and Boca Juniors in 2000, 2001 and 2003; he is followed by Osvaldo Zubeldía with three consecutive wins in 1968, 1969 and 1970 (all with Estudiantes); nine other managers won the tournament on two occasions.

Along with Carlos Bianchi, only two other managers have won the title with two different clubs: Paulo Autuori (with Cruzeiro in 1997 and São Paulo in 2005), and Luiz Felipe Scolari (with Grêmio in 1995 and Palmeiras in 1999).
