Africa Top Sports revealed some hours ago the candidates for the FIFA World Coach of the Year for Men’s Football award. And as you might imagine, the most startling missing in such a group is the African reigning champion coach of Nigeria. Nigeria is surprised when they cannot see the name of their super coach among the world’s greatest technicians. Why such an exclusion? Is it because he is black? Or is it the result of the inconsideration for Africa? Many questions arise throughout Africa. Even Africa Top Sports, the first sports website in Africa believes Stephen keshi deserves a place in the group of the World coach of the year.
The final decisions will be made by the captains and head coaches of the men’s national teams as well as by international media representatives selected by France Football.
The following ten coaches (in alphabetical order, first nationality and then team) are in contention for the FIFA World Coach of the Year for Men’s Football 2013:
