Manager of the Season – Jupp Heynckes, Bayern Munich

It was hardly going to be anyone else, was it? The German created a team of such power and precision, it was difficult to see any team defeating them - and hardly any did as Bayern swept the board of trophies.

They passed every test handed to them throughout the season and could well have announced a new era of dominance with the 7-0 aggregate thrashing of Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals.

Heynckes will, incredibly, retire this summer to be replaced by former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola and has left the Spaniard with a almost perfectly organised side. The defensive cohesion of the Bayern side when they lose the ball is almost as good to watch as one of their lightning-quick counter attacks.
