Antonio Conte has received some well-earned recognition for his fantastic first season with Chelsea. Conte was nominated for the Best FIFA Men's Coach alongside Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri and Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane.

Claudio Ranieri won the award last season after leading Leicester City to the Premier League title. This year Zidane is likely the favorite to win after leading Real Madrid to a second straight Champions League title and their first La Liga title since 2011-12.

Conte’s best chance is due to having the most hair of the three, and also because he won the Premier League in his first season and in doing so he set a new league record with 30 wins in a single season.

Allegri took Juventus to the Serie A title once again, and brought his team to the Champions League final where they were demolished by Real Madrid. His best accomplishment was his run to the Champions League final, which included shutting out Barcelona and holding Kylian Mbappe’s Monaco to one goal.

The award will be handed out on October 23rd in London at the Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony.
