Globe Soccer Awards’ choice of Best Coach shows they take FIFA rankings a bit too seriously (Video)

The 7th annual Globe Soccer Awards show was held in Dubai tonight.

Attempting to fill a niche by including a Best President and Best Agent category, the awards show remains below the radar and far from the mainstream consciousness.

And the choice of Best Coach might explain why: by choosing Belgium boss Marc Wilmots, the coach category appears to have been chosen based on the FIFA rankings, with Belgium now the top ranked team in the world.

But apart from qualifying Belgium for Euro 2016 from a relatively easy group, it’s hard to see how Wilmots won over the likes of Luis Enrique or Pep Guardiola, both of whom won titles on the club scene.

You can watch Wilmots being presented with the award at 35:00 of the full show clip below from Barcelona’s Youtube channel.
