Mazel Tov! Helena Costa Becomes Coach of Clermont Foot 63

9 May

article-0-1DA4607600000578-764_306x423Wonderful news! Helena Costa has been chosen to coach Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot 63. She’s an accomplished coach who has, among other things, managed the women’s national teams of Qatar & Iran, Benfica’s boys’ youth teams (for 13 years) and acted as a scout for SPL side Celtic. While she is the first woman to coach a European professional team, Helena also coached a men’s team on the regional level, just like Tihana Nemčić did in the Croatian 5th division. Read more about her journey here:  1  2  3   I’m side eyeing the hell out of the Daily Fail for leading with the “Jose Mourinho in a petticoat” line. Ugh. But this a very welcome change. I can’t wait to see her kick some ass.

    YES! Good for Helena. I hope she has thick skin, as I can imagine she’ll be hearing lots of similar headlines. I can’t wait until appointments like this are so common that they’re no longer considered newsworthy …
