What is the UEFA Men's Coach of the Year award?
For this award, European coaches, regardless of nationality, were judged by their performance throughout the season in all competitions - both domestically and internationally - at the club or national team level.
How Flick was chosen
The jury consisted of 80 club coaches from the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stages (32) and the UEFA Europa League (48), as well as 55 journalists selected by the European Sports Media (ESM) group, one from each member association UEFA.
The jury selected the three best coaches, the first of whom received five points, the second three and the third. Coaches were not allowed to vote for themselves.
