Helena Costa is to become France's first ever professional female coach for a male team after her appointment at Clermont Foot.
'what a man can do, a woman can do better' An Africa Proverb. I guess that is the proverb a French Club management is hinging on  by picking a female coach to lead a French professional football club, while her appointment, announced Wednesday, represents the first time a team in the top two divisions of one of Europe's big five leagues -- Spain, Germany, England, Italy and France -- has hired a female manager.
"Clermont Foot 63 has chosen Helena Costa to be our new coach," a statement confirming the appointment read.
"This appointment will allow Clermont Foot 63 to begin a new era, relying on a group of 17 players currently under contract, which will be added by young players from the club."
The Portuguese will succeed Regis Brouard, who is currently in charge of Clermont but is leaving at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Costa, a sports science graduate, has been rewarded following her work with the Iran and Qatar women's national teams, while she also led Benfica's male youth team to two World Youth titles. She also spent time as a scout with Scottish club Celtic. Currently 14th in Ligue 2, Clermontwill introduce Costa to the French media after the season's final set of fixtures.
Helena Costa, who was previously in charge of the Iran women's national team, will take over the reins at Clermont next season.
The 36-year-old will become the first female coach of a French professional football club, while her appointment, announced Wednesday, represents the first time a team in the top two divisions of one of Europe's big five leagues -- Spain, Germany, England, Italy and France -- has hired a female manager.
