Olympic gold medal-winning coach Silvia Neid is a contender to win a hat trick of FIFA awards as the best coach in women’s football.
Neid, who retired after leading Germany to a first Olympic title at the Rio de Janeiro Games, is among 10 nominees announced Tuesday by FIFA. She previously won the award for 2010 and 2013.
Pia Sundhage, who won in 2012 after her United States team won Olympic gold, is nominated for coaching Sweden to Olympic silver. US coach Jill Ellis, who won the 2015 FIFA award, is on the 10-coach list, which includes five men.
Voting is by national team captains and coaches, selected media and an online fan poll.
FIFA says it will announce a three-person shortlist on Dec. 2.
