THE BEST FIFA WOMEN'S COACH AWARD 2016 - Silvia Neid WINNER
09 Jan 2017
Legendary German coach Silvia Neid has ended a remarkable career by reaching the peak of her profession for the third time, twice more than any other coach in women’s football. Having been involved in each of Germany’s eight European and two FIFA Women’s World Cup™ wins as either a player, assistant coach, or head coach, Silvia Neid’s biography reads like a never-ending list of triumphs. She capped off this remarkable record in 2016 by leading her country to their first gold medal at the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in Brazil. The Rio 2016 final was Neid’s last game as national team coach, bringing an end to this impressive era and seeing her hand over to Steffi Jones, who has an unenviable task as her successor.
