Atletico Madrid chief coach, Diego Simeone has been named the football manager of the decade by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).
The Argentine saw off competition from the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho despite winning just one league title during the said period from 2011 to 2020.
Simeone (152 points) led Pep Guardiola (144 points) to the award, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp third on 105 points.
In a statement, the IFFHS noted:
‘Simeone realised a great performance with his club Atletico Madrid in this decade: 1 LaLiga title, 1 Copa del Rey, 1 Super Copa Espana, 2 UEFA Europa League titles, 2 UEFA Super Cup titles and 2 times Runner-Up in UEFA Champions League Finals.
‘His regularity and his power made the difference to win the Award of the Decade 2011-2020.’
