Jupp Heynckes named 2013 World's Best Club Coach by IFFHS

Jupp Heynckes adds another award to his personal trophy case.

Jupp Heynckes lead Bayern Munich to the greatest season in club history during the 2012-2013 season and has seen a lot of awards heaped on him thus far. We can now add another to the list. The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) has named Heynckes 2013 World's Best Club Coach.

  1. Jupp Heynckes (Bayern Munich) - 216 points
  2. Jürgen Klopp (Borussia Dortmund) - 101 points
  3. Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) - 61 points
  4. Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) - 33 points
  5. Pep Guardiola (Bayern Munich) - 30 points
  6. Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) - 29 points
  7. Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid/Chelsea) - 10
  8. Antonio Conte (Juventus) / Jorge Jesus (Benfica) - 3 points

It's tough to argue that anyone other than Heynckes deserved this award. Oh, it's also nice to see that Pep Guardiola received some recognition for the work that he's done with Bayern in the first half of this season.

Heynckes is the second Bayern manager to win this award after Ottmar Hitzfeld won it in 2001 after Bayern won the Bundesliga and Champions League. Perhaps will be looking at back-to-back Bayern winners next year?
