Hansi Flick named UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year ahead of Jurgen Klopp and Julian Nagelsmann

Hansi Flick has beaten off competition from fellow Germans Jurgen Klopp and Julian Nagelsmann to become the first recipient of the 2019/20 UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year award.

The trio were originally cut from a shortlist of 10 managers - selected by 80 managers and 55 journalists - with the final standings based on the total number of votes cast.

Klopp led Liverpool to an historic Premier League title and FIFA Club World Cup, while 33-year-old Nagelsmann continued his impressive rise up the managerial ladder, yet few can argue with Flick’s individual triumph, which was revealed during Thursday’s 2020/21 Champions League draw.

This is a manager who only took charge of Bayern Munich in November - his first manager’s job in 14 years - and in turn inspired a stunning transformation as the German giants famously went on to win the treble: Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup for the second time in their history.

In doing so Flick became the ninth manager to win Europe’s ‘Continental Treble’ joining an elite group featuring Jock Stein, Stefan Kovacs, Guus Hiddink, Sir Alex Ferguson, Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Jupp Heynckes and Luis Enrique.

Not satisfied with just the three trophies, Flick has since added two more pieces of silverware to the cabinet in the form of the UEFA and German Super Cups following wins over Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

Between his first caretaker game in November through to the crowning 1-0 win over PSG which took Bayern back to the summit of Europe, Flick’s men registered 33 wins from 36 matches, and stormed home with 21 straight triumphs. 

During this period Bayern scored 122 goals, and netted 4+ or more goals in 16 of those 33 wins,  including eight against Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Lluís Cortes (Barcelona), Stephan Lerch (VfL Wolfsburg) and Jean-Luc Vasseur (Lyon) battled it out for the 2019/20 UEFA Women’s Coach of the Year, which was won by Vasseur after he led the French side to a treble in his first season in charge.
