Lionel Scaloni Wins The Best FIFA Men’s Coach for 2022 award


Lionel Scaloni has won The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award for 2022 after leading Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar.

The 44-year-old proved doubters wrong after his appointment in 2018 by delivering success in the 2021 Copa America, ending the Albiceleste’s 28-year trophy run.

He and Argentina followed that success with victory at the 2022 World Cup, bouncing back from an opening defeat to Saudi Arabia to make their way to the final where they beat France on penalties.

Scaloni has just signed a new contract extension with Argentina which will keep him in the role until 2026, when the next World Cup is scheduled to take place.
