IFFHS Manager Of The Year Award Nominees Revealed

Every year, the IFFHS, which was founded in 1984 in Germany but is based in Switzerland today, names its winners of various individual and team accolades.

For this particular prize, the Manager of the Year Award, several of the world's most recognisable coaches have been selected as candidates, with former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick being handed the accolade in 2020 for his exploits as boss of the Bavarians.

Flick, now head coach of Germany, guided Bayern to six trophies last year, in the form of the UEFA Champions League, Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles, before scooping up the individual award.

This time out, it might be Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel who is considered the favourite given his exploits for the Blues in 2021. He arrived in London to replace Frank Lampard in January and not only secured 2021/22 UCL football for the team but took his side all the way in Europe against all odds.

Manchester City's Guardiola is also among the candidates, as are Tottenham Hotspur-linked Antonio Conte and Zidane, who is yet to return to management since leaving Real Madrid earlier this year.

Al Ahly's Mosimane is among the few representatives from the African continent, along with one of Mamelodi Sundowns' co-coaches. Have a look at the nominees in the gallery above!
