Gary Rowett is the manager of Stoke City. Rowett left his post at Derby in order to replace Paul Lambert at The Potters, signing a three-year deal in May 2018.
Rowett began his managerial career with Burton, while he went on to steady the ship at troubled Birmingham City, before controversially getting fired in December 2016, in one of the worst decisions in recent memory.
When you look at the likes of Mourinho's Inter Milan when they beat Barcelona and Bayern Munich to win the Champions League, they literally gave the ball away on purpose so they could maintain their defensive shape when they were 1-0 up, and I think a lot of teams at this level are looking at those types of aspects and seeing that as a feature of defensive play.
I love Dortmund's ethos and the ethos of Jurgen Klopp, Klopp says it himself: 'if we run more than the opposition, we will win' - and he's quite unashamed about that. It's all about effort and desire.
[John Beck's Cambridge of the early 1990s] was the first time I saw how an effective, solid, organised team could achieve things.

The Sack Race's Opinion
Gary Rowett has shown himself to be a capable manager, with both Burton Albion and Birmingham, and we wouldn't rule out the possibility of him managing in the Premier League soon.
