Breaking: Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel Crowned The Best FIFA Men's Coach 2021

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has been crowned The Best FIFA Men's Coach for 2021.

Tuchel took over at Stamford Bridge after Frank Lampard was sacked and inspired Chelsea to Champions League triumph when they beat Manchester City in the final.

Tuchel held off competition from Pep Guardiola and Roberto Mancini in the final to win the prestigious award as we previously showed the shortlist which did not feature Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Thomas Tuchel speaks to the media

As per FIFA.com, the award is given to the most outstanding coach in men's football.

'The Best FIFA Men's Coach is given to the most outstanding coach in men's football as voted for by an international jury comprising the current coaches of all men's national teams (one per team), current captains of all men's national teams (one per team), one specialist journalist from each territory represented by a national team and fans registered on FIFA.com.'

This year's award recognises players for their performances from October 2020 to August 2021.

Previous winners include Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps and Jurgen Klopp. The Liverpool manager was given the award two years in a row after his incredible work taking the Reds back to the top of European football again winning the Premier League (2020) and the Champions League (2019).
