Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman wins Women’s Coach of the Year at the 2022 Best Fifa Awards by Michelle
Wiegman guided England to European Championship glory on home soil last year, the team’s first major trophy.
Wiegman, who won the Euros as Netherlands boss in 2017, has claimed the Fifa women’s coach award for the third time, having also earned it in 2017 and 2020.
“From when I could walk I have loved football. It’s just incredible to be right here and to celebrate women’s football,” said Wiegman.
“Little girls have their idols and inspirations. So many people across the world have worked so hard to get the game where it is right now.”
England scored 22 goals in six games on the way to winning Euro 2022, with Wiegman’s side beating Germany 2-1 in the final after extra time.
The Fifa Best Awards are presented annually by world football’s governing body, with coaches, captains, journalists and fans involved in the voting process.
The Fifpro women’s World XI was voted for by fellow professionals and included England’s Lucy Bronze, Leah Williamson, Keira Walsh and Mead.
