Enrique named IFFHS Best Coach

Barcelona’s Luis Enrique has been named the World’s Best Club Coach of 2015 by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).

The 44-year-old won the award by a considerable margin with 165 points, almost twice as many as outgoing Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola, who only mustered 86.

Enrique succeeds Carlo Ancelotti, who claimed the accolade in 2014 for guiding Real Madrid to a historic 10th Champions League title.

He also becomes the second Barca Coach to be crowned the best in the world after Guardiola in 2009 and 2011 and Frank Rijkaard in 2006.

Appointed as Tata Martino’s successor in May 2014, Enrique led Barca to their second treble in his first season, plus the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup before the end of 2015.
