Juventus boss Antonio Conte has been named Coach of the Year. Conte has been named Coach of the Year at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards.
"This honour fills me with pride and I above all thank my players for helping me achieve this award," declared Conte. "If I won this trophy then the credit is to be split with my lads, without doubt.
"Will I get the FIFA Coach of the Year award? There's a very long way to go, as you need to win international trophies, for example as Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho did.
"Therefore let's roll up our sleeves and in 2014 take the Europa League, whose Final will be played at the Juventus Stadium. Then, next season, we resume our march on the Champions League.
"The elimination in Istanbul still stings, but we couldn't really play football that day against Galatasaray. This term we want to win it all, a third Scudetto in a row and the Coppa Italia too. It'd be a record, as we could be the first side to win 10 editions of the Coppa."
