Men's World Coach

Joachim LOEW

  • 2014 was a golden year for German football and, especially, for Joachim Low. He managed to assemble a historical team that saw Germany win the FIFA World Cup™ for the first time in 24 years. This achievement saw him nominated for the Coach of the Year Award for the first time in his career.

    Low, 54 years old, is a meticulous worker and astute tactician who’s been working for 8 and a half years with ‘Die Mannschaft.’ In Brazil, he impressively moulded his team to perform as a single unit, winning the title undefeated. Now, as his team already managed in 2014, the coach is also on top of the world. 

The Finalists

  • Carlo Ancelotti showed what he is made of by sliding into the hotseat at Real Madrid and winning the Copa del Rey and the club's eagerly awaited tenth UEFA Champions League title. These successes were made all the sweeter by the fact they were secured with respective victories over old rivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. The Italian coach exceeded expectations in his first season with Los Blancos, restoring a sense of calm to the club and turning his side into a relentless winning machine spearheaded by a lethal and insatiable frontline. Ancelotti picked up this season where he left off last by landing the UEFA Super Cup, yet another piece of silverware for the Bernabeu trophy cabinet.
Diego SIMEONE

  • “One game at a time” became Diego Simeone’s mantra last season, one in which his brand of dedication, perspiration and complete commitment allowed Atletico Madrid to win the Spanish La Liga and break a nine-year stranglehold by Real Madrid and Barcelona. A master when it comes to set-piece strategies and man management, the Argentinian also took his side to the brink of European glory. Appearing in only the second European Cup/UEFA Champions League final in their history, they came within seconds of lifting the famous trophy only to succumb to a last-gasp rally by cross-town rivals Real. A small measure of revenge would later come for Simeone and his men in the Spanish Super Cup.
