Football World Rankings

Why is a club listed in brackets in the Coach World Ranking?

A club in brackets means that the contract between coach and club has been terminated, but the coach keeps his points in the ranking. If the coach is without a contract, he cannot earn points for the World Ranking. Week by week, he will start to descend in the Ranking, and after 52 weeks he will completely disappear from it. However, if the coach is contracted by a new club which is playing in one of the qualifying leagues or international cup tournaments, he starts earning points for the World Ranking again.
