Tottenham Hotspur certainly found an absolute diamond when they signed Mauricio Pochettino from Southampton over five years ago.
The Argentine has taken the club from strength to strength each and every year, from Champions League wannabes to regulars in the competition.
Despite some questionable domestic form towards the end of last season, Pochettino achieved one of the most impressive feats in the club’s history.
Despite no one giving them any hope, Spurs managed to qualify for their first-ever Champions League Final, as they played Liverpool in Madrid back in June.
Unfortunately, it was not to be Tottenham’s night, as they lost 2-0 in a rather disappointing affair, but Pochettino’s achievements have not gone unnoticed.
Not only did he reach the CL Final, but the gaffer did so without spending a single penny on new players across the entire season.
FIFA have now nominated Poch as one of three for the ‘Best Men’s Coach’ Award, alongside Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.
