  1. I still believe that it is too early to put Scaloni in that category. Coaches like Klopp, Tuchel, Guadiola, Conte, Zidane, Ancelloti, Simeone, Allegri even Mancini are miles away from Scaloni but It is very encouraging that he gets rewarded for his efforts.

  2. All of the coaches deserve it but Italy failed to top the group. City doesn’t have the best start this season. Conte’s Inter won scudetto that’s about it. Germany coach really? After the poor Euro?

    The one that can rival Scaloni is Tuchel’s Chelsea. Champions cup winner, top the EPL this season. It is between Scaloni and Tuchel to me. Scaloni resume? we already know about it.
