AFC Wimbledon Plans to Appoint First Woman to Manage Male Team

Emma HayesLeague One side AFC Wimbledon are reportedly considering a move to appoint Emma Hayes as their new first-team manager.

Hayes, who is currently in charge of FA Women’s Super League side Chelsea, would become the first woman in history to take charge of a men’s football league side if she were to get the job.

The 44-year-old has been put on a shortlist that includes former Blackpool manager Ian Holloway, ex-England defender Sol Campbell and recently sacked Fleetwood boss Joey Barton, according to The Express.

AFC Wimbledon decided to sack manager Glyn Hodges following their 2-0 defeat to MK Dons on Saturday.

Hayes has managed a number of clubs in Women’s football over the years, including spells at Long Island Lady Riders, Arsenal Ladies, Chicago Red Stars and Chelsea Women.

The Blues are currently on a remarkable 33-game unbeaten run in the Women’s Super League after a win against Tottenham at the weekend.

“All coaches aspire to be at the best level they can get to, and I’m no different,” she admitted. “If it happened for me that the next opportunity was in the men’s game, then I’d welcome that.

“But I also think there needs to be more female coaches at the top end of the women’s game before more are entering into the men’s game.”
