Netherlands women’s coach Sarina Wiegman, who will replace Phil Neville as England Women’s head coach in September 2021, won The Best FIFA Women’s Coach.

Wiegman guided the Netherlands to eight straight wins in UEFA Women’s Championship qualifying, though come the tournament she will be in charge of England after Euro 2021 was pushed back a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

She signed a four-year deal and will take charge of England after the postponed Tokyo Olympics next summer, where Neville is expected to take charge of the Team GB women’s football team.

“Phil has responsibility for his team for the upcoming 12 months and I will absolutely respect that,” said Wiegman in August.

Chelsea Women’s coach Emma Hayes and Lyon’s Jean-Luc Vasseur were the other two finalists for the award.
