BREAKING – Claudio Ranieri wins Best FIFA Men’s Coach of the Year


Leicester City’s Claudio Ranieri won the Best FIFA Men’s Coach of the Year award on Monday after beating Portugal’s Fernando Santos and Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane on the shortlist.

Ranieri defied odds of 5,000-1 to lead Leicester to the Premier League title last season — the first-ever top-flight title in their 132-year history — and has overseen a strong start to the club’s first ever Champions League campaign this season, despite his side struggling in the league.

At receiving the honor, Ranieri was at his humble best and said: “Our supporters made something fantastic this year. My philosophy is to forget and look forward. The keys to success were many. Everything flowed in the right direction.”
