    FIFA: Checkout Nominees for Best Men’s Player, Best Men’s Coach

    FIFA has announced the nominees for its annual The Best awards, awarding — you guessed it — the best players and coaches of the year. Tottenham Hotspur, for the third year in a row, will be represented in the men’s football categories, as both Harry Kane and Mauricio Pochettino have been nominated in the player and coach categories, respectively.

    Both Kane and Pochettino are being rewarded for reaching the Champions League final last month, as well as enjoying another top four finish in the Premier League. Kane is also being celebrated for the 17 goals he scored in 28 Premier League matches in the 2018-19 season.
    Kane has made the ten person shortlist for the second year in a row after winning the Golden Boot with England at the 2018 World Cup, and additionally made a longer shortlist in 2017. Pochettino, meanwhile, was on the 2017 shortlist but missed out on a nomination in 2018.

    The three finalists in all categories will be announced at a later date, and the ceremony will be on September 23 in Milan.
    From the shortlist, four groups of the football community, namely journalists, fans, national team coaches and captains – each section having a weighting of 25% – will now be allowed to vote for their favourites. The voting period commences on 31 July and concludes at midnight (CET) on 19 August.
    All award winners will be revealed at The Best FIFA Football Awards show in Milan on 23 September.
