Ligue 2 Side Clermont Foot Names Helena Costa As Club's First Female Manager
Published May 8, 2014
PLAYERS OFFER SUPPORT: In London, Julien Pretot reported Clermont is 14th in Ligue 2 with two matches to go. Forward Remy Dugimont told L'Equipe, "It's a big surprise ... It comes from nowhere. We'll have to learn to know her. We hope it is going to be fine but I don't think there is problem" (EVENING STANDARD, 5/7). In London, David Kent reported Dugimont "does not believe Costa's relative lack of experience in the men's game will be a problem, nor does he see issues arising with respect." Dugimont: ''I'm not macho. She has worked in the profession and all the boys know how it works." Dugimont's view "is shared" by teammate Anthony Lippini. Lippini: ''I spoke with the physio and we spoke about the first time a woman entered the army ... A very macho environment. Now there are many women in the army and it may be the same in football. I cannot wait for next season to discover. I'm really curious" (DAILY MAIL, 5/7).
