Argentinian football star Lionel Messi won the Best FIFA Men’s Player award again. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola collected the trophy for the Best Men’s Coach. This comes just two months after Lionel Messi received the Ballon d’Or.
Guardiola guided Manchester City to victory in the Premier League, FA Cup, and their first Champions League title last season. The success also led to several Man City players receiving awards, including Ederson for the best goalkeeper, and six teammates making it to the Men’s Team of the Year.
On the women’s side, England manager Sarina Wiegman was named the Best Women’s Coach. Spain and Barcelona midfielder Aitana Bonmati won the Women’s Best Player, adding to her Women’s Ballon d’Or.
Additionally, Marta received the FIFA Special Award for her remarkable career achievements. The 37-year-old Brazilian scored 17 goals in 23 matches across six World Cup tournaments and was honored as the world’s best female player six times.
