Jose Mourinho Wins FIFA Coach Of The Year Award

Real Madrid tactician Jose Mourinho has been named FIFA's 2010 Men's Football Coach of the Year for his treble-winning exploits with Inter last season.

Mourinho led the Nerazzurri to the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles in the 2009-10 campaign. It was also the first time that an Italian team had won the treble.

The Portuguese left Inter in the summer to join Spanish giants Real Madrid. He has been successful with them so far too, with los Blancos just two points off the pace in the Spanish Primera Division and still in with a chance to win the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

After receiving the award, the 47-year-old said, “I would like to congratulate two marvelous coaches: Vicente del Bosque and Pep Guardiola. I’ve worked very hard to reach this far, but I haven’t done it on my own.

"I want to thank my players, my colleagues and, especially, those who love me and who have supported me at all times to get to experience this very special moment.”
