Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni wins Best Coach of the year award

Lionel Scaloni took Argentina to their third FIFA World Cup victory last year.

Lionel Scaloni, the head coach of the Argentine national football team, has been named the winner of the FIFA Men’s Best Coach of the Year award for 2022. The prestigious award recognizes his outstanding performance in leading the team to victory at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Scaloni, a former Argentine international player, took charge of the national team in 2018 and has been instrumental in their success. Under his guidance, Argentina won the Copa America in 2021, breaking a 28-year drought in major international tournaments. However, it was their performance in the World Cup 2022 that truly cemented Scaloni’s place as one of the best coaches in the world.


Scaloni’s tactical prowess, ability to motivate his players, and his knack for making crucial substitutions at the right time were instrumental in Argentina’s success. He also managed to successfully integrate younger players into the team, creating a balanced and cohesive unit that proved to be a formidable force on the world stage.

In accepting the award, Scaloni expressed his gratitude to his players, staff, and the Argentine football federation for their support. He also dedicated the award to the fans who had supported the team throughout the tournament.
