FIFA announced the thre finalists in the coaching category for this year's The Best award. The candidates for the best coach of 2017 are Zinedine Zidane, Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri.
Zidane's great year
The Real Madrid is the principal favorite to pick up the accolade after his hugely successful year in which his team won LaLiga, the Champions league, Spanish and European Supercups.
Zidane beat one of his fellow rivals for the coaching award, Massimiliano Allegri to win the Champions League final; the Italian, who guided the Vecchia Signora to their second European final in three years, completed a league and Cup double with Juve for the second year running.
The third candidate, Antonio Conte, masterminded Chelsea's fruitful Premier League campaign in which the Blues were crowned English champions for the sixth time in their history.
