You may not be aware of the International Federation of Football History & Statistics. It's an organisation, based in Switzerland - aren't they all? - that award clubs, players and managers with various gongs for excellence.

The Best Club Coach Award is a fascinating one. It's so hard to actually gauge what separates a good coach from a great one. 

For example, Zinedine Zidane has won the Champions League - but could he have done Eddie Howe's job of keeping Bournemouth in existence over a decade ago? OK, that's an extreme example - but the point still stands.

There aren't that many awards for managers, so fair play to anyone who actually tries to organise them. Today, we've listed the winners and runners-up of the IFFHS World's Best Club Coach award - can you guess who made the cut?

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
