More female competence for men's football: this is the appeal that women's national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg addresses to German professional clubs.

"I can only advise every club, every sports director: Get women in your teams," she told the newspapers of the Funke media group: "You will find that they work better and are more efficient."

Voss-Tecklenburg (53) does not fear possible acceptance problems: “It's about whether you are a good coach or not.

I can't imagine that the fans would have prejudices, our world is now much too diverse for that, "she said:" It just takes someone to start with it. "

DFB double leadership

The national coach would also welcome a possible DFB dual leadership consisting of a woman and a man: “Now we also need women who say“ Yes ”when asked to take on this responsibility.

We have these personalities, "she said:" I could well imagine that dual leadership works if you go the same way. "

In order to attract more viewers to the women's Bundesliga, she relies above all on the clubs that are also represented by the men: “People won't come by themselves, you have to encourage them,” said Voss-Tecklenburg: “That's why you need to there are great stadiums, good kick-off times, more information. ”Public service broadcasting is also responsible, since its social mission is“ not just men's football, which is oversized ”.
