Jupp Heynckes named Coach of the Year while Zlatan scoops award for wonder goal
Jupp Heynckes, now retired, was named coach of the year by FIFA on Monday after leading Bayern Munich to an unprecedented treble last season.
The 67-year-old ended a 48-year career in the sport by guiding Bayern to the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League titles.
He won the award ahead of former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and fellow German Juergen Klopp, coach of Borussia Dortmund.
Klopp began as a player with Borussia Moenchengladbach in 1965 and spent his entire career there, apart from a three-season spell at Hanover 96.
As a coach he led Moenchengladbach, Athletic Bilbao, Eintracht Frankfurt, Tenerife, Real Madrid, Benfica and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as three stints with Bayern.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed the Ferenc Puskas Goal award for his stunning 40 yard overhead strike for Sweden against England.
“I am very proud to be here tonight and I congratulate all the other nominees and winners. For the big trophy later, may the best man win.”
