'I select on penis length,' says female coach of German men's team

A female coach, who recently became the first woman to take charge of a men's team in Germany's fifth tier, had a sarcastic response when asked a sexist question by a journalist.

In a recent interview, a journalist asked Wubbenhorst whether she puts a siren on her head to warn players to put on their trousers before she enters the locker room.

Former Germany women's Under-20 midfielder Imke Wuebbenhorst was last month appointed head coach of the men's team at BV Cloppenburg, who now sit bottom of the Lower Saxony Oberliga in the fifth tier of German football.

When it comes to German football managers, Jurgen Klopp is popular to respond sarcastically when a question warrants it. "I'm a professional. I pick the team on penis size".

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.

Vale recordar que, además de Schwartzman , sigue con vida en el torneo Leonardo Mayer (jugará con Fabio Fognini). Nunca me tocó jugar con él, así que estará bueno para saber en qué nivel estoy", valoró Schwartzman .

Wubbenhorst, 30, was earlier managing the women's team but the club decided she would be better in helping the relegation-threatened men's side.

The presence of a female head coach in Germany's lower leagues has attracted plenty of media attention, but Wuebbenhorst is focused exclusively on the task in hand.

She played for the Cloppenburg women's team and played for Germany at every age group bar the senior team during her playing career.

She has been working in coaching at the club she played for since retiring in 2016, and that has seen her earn her chance at the main job.
