Other nominations are Didier Deschamps (France), Luis Enrique (Barcelona), Fernando Santos (Portugal), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) and Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid).
The winner of The Best FIFA Men’s Coach 2016 will be chosen through a combined voting process, in which 50% of the decision will be based on the choices of all captains and head coaches of national teams around the globe. The other 50% will be split between the result of an online public ballot with football fans and submissions from a selected group of over 200 media representatives from the six continents.
The award winner will be announced on 9 January, 2017.
