Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp Nominated For Best FIFA Men’s Coach Award

The Liverpool manager is included on the 10-man shortlist for the accolade that recognizes the world's best tacticians in the men's game.

On the back of his £99 million ($121 million/€109 million) move from Real Madrid in July 2018, Ronaldo scored 21 Serie A goals as Juventus claimed an eighth consecutive domestic league title.

Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard also made the shortlist.

The nominees were chosen by a panel of football experts and FIFA confirmed the chosen candidates on Wednesday afternoon via their social media channels.


U.S. women's national team coach Jill Ellis, who led her side to their fourth World Cup title earlier this month, heads the list of nominees for the Best FIFA Women's Coach.

Italy's Milena Bertolini completes the World Cup influence, earning well deseved recognition for leading the country to their first appearance at the tournament for 20 years, as well as guiding them to the quarter-finals for the first time since 1991.

The European Cup winners are the most well-represented side on the list, with no Manchester City players making the cut.

The Brazilian's magic hands guided Liverpool to their sixth Champions League triumph and second-best in the Premier League to champions Manchester City.


Salah and Firmino just returned to the team from African Cup of Nations and Copa America respectively.

Also on the list are Didier Deschamps, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Tite and Fernando Santos.

The winners in all categories will be announced at a gala in Milan on September 23.

The short lists are drawn up by a panel of experts but voting is open to the general public, if they sign up via the Federation Internationale de Football Association website.


Fans can already vote for their top three, with the fan vote equally weighted alongside votes from journalists, national team captains and national team coaches. They split again in 2016 and FIFA's award was rebranded Best Player of the Year.
