El-Chelsea defensive midfielder Deschamps (30.52 %) saw off competition from Zidane (25.74 %) and Dalic (11.81 %) to win the accolade.

National Teams captains and managers were asked to pick three coaches for the award, and the full list of votes were published immediately after the ceremony had concluded.
