Harry Awurumibe with agency report
Former Germany national women’s football team star and now Head Coach, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg has commended the tremendous improvement in the women’s game , saying that the biggest milestone is that many more countries now have interest in women’s football.
According to the ex-international, many nations have also introduced all kinds of projects to promote women’s football even as she said that many other changes have happened to the game to ensure its progress globally.
“The biggest milestone is that many more countries have an interest in women’s football and have introduced all kinds of projects. The social picture has changed. Today girls are no longer generally asked how they ended up playing football. That’s one of the measurable factors. Another milestone is the increasing professionalisation of the sport. When I see the possibilities that international players have these days… they come to me and say: “I can play there, there and there…”
Voss-Tecklenburg who has witnessed the changes in women’s football firsthand as a player and now a coach spoke recently to FIFA.Com and the full interview is reproduced in the interview page of this newspaper.
