UMBRO Awards 2007 by Futsalplanet.com: Best National Team Coach of the World

Futsalplanet Awards 2007 - Dimitri Nicolaou Prize - Best National Team Coach of the World
Dear futsal friends,

as announced we're ready to celebrate the first category winner of the UMBRO Futsal Awards 2007 by Futsalplanet.com. This award has a special meaning, as it's dedicated to the memory of a great friend of us: Dimitri Nicolaou. We're talking about the Best National Team Coach of the World category, which since this edition and for the future ones will be known as Dimitri Nicolaou Award. Before the end of the summer we will announce candidates list and winners of the other UMBRO Futsal Awards 2007 categories, stay tuned!

So, who's the winner? Who's the Best National Team Coach of the World? It was maybe not hard to guess, but the Euro 2007 triumph in his first official challenge was probably the key for the Josè Venancio Lopez Hierro clear victory of the Dimitri Nicolaou Award 2007! The former Lobelle De Santiago's coach claimed the annual prize overcoming the strong competition of his former colleague on the Iberian bench Javier Lozano Cid. The 100% winning trainer of the Canarinhos, Paulo Cesar De Oliveira "PC" got the bronze medal at the end of a great year. Below have a look at the complete standing!
