Leeds boss Bielsa makes FIFA's Coach of the Year nominees list

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is a surprise inclusion on the five-man shortlist for FIFA's Coach of the Year.

The Argentine was the eye-catching name on the five-man list but did manage to guide Leeds United to the Championship title last season.

The 65-year-old isn't the only Premier League manager to have been shortlisted with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also included after ending their 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England again.

Joining those two are Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick, who led them to another historic Treble; Sevilla's Julen Lopetegui who won the Europa League last season and Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane who won LaLiga.
