Marseille boss Andre Villas-Boas thinks it is « scandalous » that Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has been nominated for the best FIFA coach award.
The Argentine coach brought Leeds back into the Premier League with a first place in the championship last season, ending his 16-year wait for a return to the top flight of English football. The championship title was the first European cup that Bielsa won as a coach. This season, the Yorkshire Club ranks 14th. Table position.
Former Chelsea head coach Villas-Boas, who triple won with Porto in 2011 and became the youngest manager ever to win a European competition at the age of 33 – the Europa League – sees Bielsas shortlisted for the prestigious award as ridiculous.
The Portuguese coach also struggles to understand why Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel is also not on the list.
« It is a scandal that Tuchel is not in the top 5, » he said. « FIFA is sleeping . . . Tuchel won four trophies and then reached the Champions League final. «
Marseille from Villas-Boas are currently in seventh place in Ligue 1 and have yet to pick up one point in the group stage of the Champions League this season.
