    Default Greg Vanney named 2017 CONCACAF Coach of the Year

    I haven't seen this elsewhere in the forum so I'll drop it here.

    That's quite an honour for Vanney.

    Miami (Tuesday, December 19, 2017) – The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced today the winners in the remaining nine categories of the 2017 CONCACAF Awards. On Sunday, December 17, Morgan and Navas were announced as CONCACAF Female and Male Players of the year during the fourth edition of the Premios Univision Deportes.

    In an equally-weighted vote among Member Association women’s and men’s national team coaches/captains, media and fans, Morgan captured the award for the second consecutive time and third overall, while this is the second honor for Navas.

    The winners in the other categories are: Goalkeepers of the Year – Keylor Navas (CRC) and Adrianna Franch (USA); Coaches of the Year – Greg Vanney (USA) and Eva Espejo (MEX); Referees of the Year – Cesar Ramos (MEX) and Lucila Venegas (MEX); Goal of the Year – Amaury Escoto (MEX), in the 85th minute of the match v. CD Guadalajara.

    Wow.

    High praise, indeed.

    Lovely for us to be getting that recognition/respect, throughout the region, which can only serve to help build our reputation (useful when signing players).

    First ever. Every other winner was Mexican. It's a huge honour.

    Top coach of the best MLS season ever.
