The winner of The Best FIFA Men’s Coach 2016 will be chosen via a combined voting process. Half the vote will be determined by the captains and coaches of national teams. The other 50% will be split between the result of an online public ballot with football fans and submissions from a select group of over media representatives from around the world. The shortlist for The Best FIFA Women’s Coach 2016 was announced yesterday, and will be followed in the next 48 hours by the nominees for the best male and female player of 2016.
Four Premier League managers have been included in FIFA’s 10-man shortlist for the 2016 Coach of the Year. Leicester City’s Premier League winning manager Claudio Ranieri is joined by Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino, and Man City boss Pep Guardiola, previously of Bayern Munich.
Wales manager Chris Coleman also has the chance to win the coveted accolade following his outstanding achievements with The Dragons. The other five contenders are Didier Deschamps (France), Luis Enrique (Barcelona), Fernando Santos (Portugal), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) and Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid).
All 10 managers have enjoyed stellar years in the world of football, although a few gaffers stand-out in particular. Leicester City’s once-in-a-lifetime Premier League winning season makes for one of the most stunning stories in sports history. Ranieri took over a team installed as one of the favourites for relegation, with odds of 5000/1 for the title, however the Italian remarkably went on to lead his troops to top-flight glory.
Tony Pulis believes Ranieri should be chosen over Champions League or Bundesliga winners because of his ‘extraordinary’ achievement at lifting Leicester to the Premier League title last season and continuing with success in Europe this. 'Just on the basis that to win the Premier League, to do it over 38 games, the most demanding season in the world, is extraordinary from a team who had just finished outside the bottom four the year before.’ he said.
The eight awards for 2016 will also recognize the Best Male Player, Best Female Player, Best Female, Puskas Award for Best Goal, Fair Play, the fans and the ideal campaign team (FIFA FIFPro World11).
