Chelsea women’s boss to become first female manager in men’s senior football in England
Chelsea FC Women boss Emma Hayes has had an illustrious career since taking over at Chelsea back in 2012 with two League and Women’s FA Cup doubles, as well as winning the title and the League Cup last season.
The 44 year old boasts an incredible 33-match unbeaten record in the Women’s Super League following a 4-0 victory over local rivals Tottenham last weekend.
Meanwhile, according to Daily Mail, AFC Wimbledon are considering hiring Emma Hayes as their new boss in a move which would make her the first senior female manager ever in the men’s game.
Glyn Hodges left AFC Wimbledon by mutual consent on Saturday night after the 2-0 defeat by MK Dons left them 21st in League One, with just one win from their last 13 games.
Hayes face some stiff competition for the job with Ian Holloway, who left Grimsby in December, ex-England star Sol Campbell, Morecambe manager Derek Adams, former Fleetwood boss Joey Barton, and National League Boreham Wood’s Luke Garrard all linked with the vacant role.
Hayes was also reportedly a candidate to replace Frank Lampard at Chelsea following his shock sacking last week before Thomas Tuchel was appointed.
