Clermont Foot appoint second female manager

Clermont Foot appoint a second female manager just days after Helena Costa opted to quit her role at the French club.

Clermont Foot have appointed a second female manager just days after Helena Costa stepped down from her role in charge of the club.

Costa last month became the first woman to manage a men's professional football side in the top two tiers of any European league, but opted to quit the position ahead of the new season.

However, Corinne Diacre, who made 121 appearances for France as a player between 1993 and 2005, has now been selected to take over at the Ligue 2 outfit.

"Corinne Diacre has accepted the position of coach of Clermont Foot for the next two seasons and will take up the post early next week," a club statement read.

The 39-year-old has been assistant coach to the French women's national team for the last seven years.
