France's Stéphanie Frappart , who will enter history in the European Super Cup between Liverpool and Chelsea on Wednesday for being the first woman to referee a UEFA men's competition final , said she is "ready" for this date and does not see "a lot of difference" between leading a male and a female party.
Frappart, 35 , will be assisted by compatriot Manuela Nicolosi and Irish Michelle O'Neill , with whom she has already conducted other important meetings such as the final of the World Cup in France last month between the United States and the Netherlands , and he also has the experience of having called a French Ligue 1 match last year, which he has promoted this season.
"I think there are not many differences (between a male and female game) because football is similar. They are the same rules, so I will do the same thing I do in a women's game," said the French woman at a press conference.
In addition, she is not worried that there may be many more criticisms if she makes a wrong decision. "We have to prove to ourselves that technically and physically we are at the same level as men. We are not afraid of making bad decisions, we are ready," he said.
