Mexican coach surprised with Klinsmann in Squad
The coach of the Mexican national football team Miguel Herrera is not sure why Jurgen Klinsmann was included in the shortlist of managers that have been nominated and have a chance of winning the FIFA Best Coach of the Year award of 2014.
“I don't know why JurgenKlinsman is on the list of the best 10 managers of the year. Maybe because he's German. That's the only explanation we have, because he hasn't done anything to be there. I'd say Jorge Luis Pinto did more with Costa Rica." Miguel Herrera said as he does not agree with the decision of FIFA.
Jurgenklinsmann managed to push the USA team past the group stages of Group G which was considered to be one of the toughest groups out of the entire 2014 World Cup as it included nations such as: Portugal, Ghana and the current champions of the world Germany.
The American side was also able to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup of the previous year under the guidance of JurgenKlinsmann, it was a fairly impressive season for JurgenKlinsmann and his squad of player but Mexico’s Miguel Herrera is not confident as if the German coach should have been included in the list of coaches which includes some of the highest rated and paid managers in the world of football.
Carlo Ancelotti, Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, JurgenKlinsmann, Joachim Low, Jose Mourinho, Manuel Pellegrini, Alejandro Sabella, Diego Simeone and Louis van Gaal are the coaches that have been nominated to receive the award.
That list of 10 coaches will be cut down to only 3 finalists on December 1st and the official winner is going to be announced on January 15 in Zurich.
