This is the information of the day. The French football knows a revolution with the appointment of a woman at the head a men’s professional team. It is Clermont (Ligue 2), which is tied to Helena Costa, a Portuguese technician’s services.
36 years old, she was manager of the Iranian women’s team after leading that of Qatar. She was also a recruiter for the Scottish club Celtic.
Clermont who recently parted with Régis Brouard say that “this appointment is to get the club into a new era.”
Costa becomes the first woman to lead a team of Ligue 2 in France.
