Thomas Frank has been named Coach of the Year for 2020 by a Danish football website. Transfermarkedet, a Danish football news website, conducted a poll of users for its 2020 awards. Thomas was named Coach of the Year in the poll.
Other winners included Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Pierre Emile Højbjerg, who was named male player of the year, and Chelsea's Pernille Harder, who was voted female player of the year.
