The roles of a national coach and a club coach are very different and their interests often contrary. For this reason the IFFHS has carried out separate annual World votings from the start. The experience of about two decades has shown that this is the most appropriate approach. However it is not unusual for the best club coaches to become national coaches. And not rare a coach takes over after his job as national coach again the function of a club coach. So it is logically for the purposes of a CENTURY World Ranking to unite the two categories of coaches.
The IFFHS has devised an equitable method for determining the ranking of THE WORLD’S BEST COACH OF THE XXIst CENTURY 2001-2020. The IFFHS has taken in consideration the TOP 20 of each yearly ranking of each category concerned ( Top 20 of BEST NATIONAL COACH and Top 20 of BEST CLUB COACH) and allocated points to each place. So the first placed received 20 points, the second placed 19 points, the third placed 18 points …. And 1 point for the twentieth place. If the annual ranking comprised fewer than 20, no point will be awarded for the unoccupied places . Adding the points from the individual years of each category provides a World Ranking for the Period 2001 – 2020.
