Days before she could become the third U.S. player in history to win FIFA's Women's World Player of the Year award, Carli Lloyd joins the Planet Fútbol Podcast.

Lloyd's 2015 was historic, and she'll hope it leads to a place on the stage where Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach were also crowned the world's best. Lloyd, who joined our podcast back in August as well, talks to SI's Grant Wahl about the potential honor and also delves into the hot-button issue of equality across men's and women's players, a subject that is only gaining traction. 

Wahl, SI's Ben Lyttleton and Avi Creditor also take a spin on Europe's coaching carousel, which has already seen some of the biggest names in management change addresses and surely has more moves on the way. Where will Pep Guardiola go? Is Arsenal a viable possibility? How will Zinedine Zidane fare at Real Madrid?
