Buying and selling players is very much the responsibility of the modern football manager, but which boss has sold the most players since 2000? The likes of Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger both feature in the list! 

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the 10 managers who have sold the most players in the last 18 years.

The manager at the top of the list is Wenger, having sold 97 players since the year 2000, a time frame in which he has been at Arsenal, with the Frenchman having joined the Gunners in 1996.

Second in the gallery is current Sporting Lisbon manager Jorge Jesus with his 94 players sold over the last 18 years, but unlike the aforementioned Wenger, he has been in charge of three different clubs during that time.

Italian manager Roberto Mancini, who has managed the likes of Manchester City and Inter Milan, has let go of 92 players since the turn of the millennium, followed by his countryman Massimiliano Allegri, who has sold 84 players.

Current Manchester United boss Mourinho is fifth on the list, having sold 84 players, while ex-Real Madrid and Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has sold 81 players since 2000.

Italian bosses Carlo Ancelotti and Luciano Spalletti are tied on 79 players old each, though the latter is currently out of a job.

Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp is perhaps surprisingly ninth on the list with 78 players sold, along with Francesco Guidolin.
