Top 7 Football Coaches of the Decade

At the beginning of this week FIFA, along with Ballon D’Or, had their annual “European Footballer of the Year” ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland, an again (as in 2009) this award went to Leonel Messi (Argentina / FC Barcelona). But this time there was something new:  for the first time they gave the award for the best coach in 2010, and this prize went to Jose Mourinho, after leading Inter Milan to the European Champions League title, beating Vicente del Bosque of World Cup champion Spain and Pep Guardiola of Spanish champion Barcelona in the inaugural prize.

This event would made us believe that Mourinho, after all the trophies he already has in only ten years, would be consider Coach of the Decade but, according to the IFFHS (International Federation of Football History & Statistics), this prize belongs to someone else. Lets check who is in the Top 7 Football Coaches of the Decade:
