The Daily Drool – Coaches: Tihana Nemčić

29 Mar

Tihana-Nemcic-hombres-Foto-AFP_ECMIMA20121002_0011_424 year old Tihana made headlines around the world when she was named head coach of Croatian 5th division men’s side NK Viktorija Vojakovac in September 2012. She previously played for Dinamo Zagreb and the Croatian Women’s National Team. Not only talented, but gorgeous, she was one of the 15 finalists for Miss Croatia Sport in 2008.

    Good for her. i lke to see an owner thinking outside the box by giving someone with talent a chance and i like to see women empowerment. Good stuff.

    On the flip side, my twisted mind wonder if the guys let their schlong hang out when she’s around in the dressing room? If yes, do you think she like what she sees? Jajaja.

      Backwards kindly provided the quote from an interview Tihana did where she talked about this a bit further down in the comments. And it’s business. I know I wouldn’t care to see any of my colleagues, esp. my subordinates nekkid. 😉

    From an old interview on the mail (don’t read the comments…they will make your blood boil)-
    ‘We have a rule,’ she said. ‘Boys go in to change. When they are finished, one of them comes out and calls me in. I would never put myself in the situation to walk in on them inside the dressing room.’

    I love this too! Hope this starts a trend for clubs to start hiring and for women to pursue their football dreams.

      There are many women who are pursuing their football dreams. There are currently 3 or 4 women who have UEFA pro licenses. I also follow a woman known as ScouserLaura on twitter on her blog (http://www.scouserlaura.com/). Plus, I coach at club level and am pursuing professional coaching myself.

      For me, I think one of the most important things is for women and girls to support each other. Cattiness will only damage us and the view of us from our male counterparts. I support as many women as I can!

          Bravo! Bow!

        That’s great, still a long way to go where I am from. I hate how there is still a boy club mentality in football.
        Good luck with your coaching career! Thats so awesome! Please keep up updated.

        And I totally agree with your comment about the support, in sport and everything really. Sometimes women can be each others worst enemy, especially in the field of work I do!

          I spent 5 years in the US Marine Corps. I know ALL about how women can be toward each other. I also know how men can view women in a predominantly male field. I’m all for everyone supporting everyone.

    This woman is awesome; she has so much talent and grace. I really respect her. I hope we get lots more ladies in football… One of my friends is nearly UEFA qualified 🙂

    Good for her!! Forget Mou or any other coach, I want to see a whole lot more women out there coaching. I love this edition of the daily drool.

      I did – was planning on posting it shortly along with the Google + hangout and New York Times piece. I just got home from work a little while ago so haven’t had time yet.

    Fantastic. Much preferable to the trophy wife club executives that get press as examples of women in positions of authority. And at 24!! What have I been doing with my life…Best of luck to Tihana and NK Viktorija Vojakovac.
