Diego Simeone has been named along with nine others as candidates to win the Best Men’s Coach award in 2016. The Argentine lead Atletico Madrid to an unlikely Champions League final and pushed until the final hurdle for La Liga’s crown with both efforts falling short. He did, however, display again just what makes him one of the best considering his victories over Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final - both of whose coaches have also made the list.

He has been named along with nine others that include Chris Coleman, Didier Deschamps, Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp, Luis Enrique, Mauricio Pochettino, Claudio Ranieri, Fernando Santos, Diego Simeone and Zinédine Zidane.
