Female coach Imke Wübbenhorst hit the headlines in December when she became the first female coach in the top five divisions of German football. Now she has hit the headlines for her witty response to an interview question.
Wübbenhorst was being interviewed by German newspaper Welt about the being the only female coach in the German men’s game, and she shrugged off the topic with a superb answer to one poorly-judged question in particular.
When asked if she told her players to ensure they were covered up when she was in the dressing room, Wübbenhorst immediately delivered a brilliant answer.
“Of course not,” she said.
“I’m a professional. I pick the team on penis size!”
It was the perfect response to a question designed to highlight supposed challenges for a woman making it as a coach in the men’s game.
