Former Croatia Footballer, Part-Time Model Now Head Coach Of Fifth Division Team
Former Croatia women's football int'l and part-time model Tihana Nemcic "has taken over as coach of a Croation men's football team -- fifth division side NK Viktorija Vojakovac," according to the London DAILY MAIL. The 24-year-old graduated in July from the country's Sporting University. At NK Viktorija Vojakovac, "she has asserted herself as the one in charge -- not the center of a media stunt." Nemcic said, "I am the head coach, and I have full liberty to create and plan the team's tactics. If a woman and a man have the same professional qualifications for a coaching job, I see no reason why I should not get into male football." The team is currently eighth in the 16-team league standings with four points after one win, one loss and one draw (DAILY MAIL, 10/1).
