Sonia Bompastor becomes 1st female manager of Lyon’s women’s team
Europe’s most successful women’s soccer team has hired a woman as its coach for the first time in history with Lyon’s appointment of Sonia Bompastor to replace Jean-Luc Vasseur.
The seven-time European champion parted ways with Vasseur after the team recently was knocked out of the Women’s Champions League at the quarter-final stage.
Lyon had won five consecutive Champions League titles but was eliminated by French rival Paris Saint-Germain this season. The 14-time French champions also trail PSG in the domestic league by one point.
