‘Why are you there?’ Fans ‘doubtful’ at the announcement of the FIFA Manager of the Year nominations
Several fans expressed their doubts about Pep Guardiola’s nomination for FIFA’s Manager of the Year nomination.
On the 10th (Korean time), FIFA selected and revealed three candidates to select the manager who showed the best leadership in 2022. In the men’s coaching category, Guardiola (Manchester City), Lionel Scaloni (Argentina national team) and Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid) were named. The results will be revealed at the ‘2022 The Best FIFA Football Awards’ held at the end of this month.
First, Coach Scaloni led the Argentine national team to victory at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, leading his country to its first championship in 36 years. While the players’ performances have been impressive, considering the proper mercenary skills and the determination shown in the tournament, Scaloni’s reason for being selected is good enough.
Ancelotti’s achievements were also great. Coach Ancelotti took the helm of Real and achieved a double by winning the Spanish La Liga and the UEFA Champions League (UCL). The clubs that Real faced in the tournament in the process of winning the championship were Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. Coach Ancelotti’s achievement deserves more applause in that he lifted the ‘Big Ear’ through a tough match. 온라인바카라
Guardiola, of course, also made an achievement. Manchester City, led by Guardiola, dramatically won the league title last season by beating Liverpool in the English Premier League (EPL). However, Manchester City had to swallow their regrets by failing again to win the UCL, their goal.
When the names of the candidate directors came out, fans couldn’t hide their surprise. It is an opinion that Guardiola has shown little over the past year compared to other coaches to enter that list. The UK’s ‘Sports Bible’ has released fans’ reactions.
“Can Guardiola win the award under this circumstance?” one fan asked. Another fan asked, “How did Guardiola get nominated?”
Some fans argued that other directors should have been nominated. “Why is Guardiola there? Why is there no Morocco national team coach Walid Legrágui or AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli?”, referring to other coaches.
