Clermont Foot's Female Manager Presented With Flowers Before First Match In Charge

Clermont Foot's Female Manager Presented With Flowers Before First Match In Charge
By Conor Neville Updated

 

 

Clermont Foot's dogged determination to become the first men's professional outfit to appoint a woman manager saw Corinne Diacre take charge against Brest in Ligue 2 yesterday.

The day also marked her 40th birthday. Cognisant of this, her opposite number, Alex Dupont, hit on the ruse of presenting her with flowers before the game. A dastardly psychological ploy. Patronise the opposing manager before the game and undermine her side.

The psychological battle duly won, Brest prevailed 2-1.

Diacre represented France 121 times, captaining them on a number of occasions. She took the job after her predecessor Helena Costa resigned before the season started.
