The best coach in the world in 2015 is from Barcelona.

Barça manager Luis Enrique Martínez has won the World Coach of the Year in the FIFA Gala awards being handed out in Switzerland. Because he is Lucho, the coach decided not to attend the ceremony, instead choosing to keep the players in the spotlight. Barça director Robert Fernández accepted the award in behalf of the coach.

Enrique took over in June 2014 with the mission of rebuilding a struggling team. After a difficult start, he and his system started dominating in 2015, eventually ending the year with an European Treble, five trophies and the love from his players and the fans.

Congrats, Lucho!
