This woman coach of a men’s football team beautifully took down this sexist question
This woman coach of a men’s football team in Germany had the perfect response to an interviewer’s predictably sexist question.
Imke Wübbenhorst is the first woman to coach a men’s team in any of Germany’s top five leagues – quite something – when she took over as coach of a a team called BV Cloppenburg in December.
So it was with grim inevitability that she was asked about the subject of nudity in the dressing room. In particular, whether she has to put a siren on her head to alert players she was on her way so they could put their pants on.
And here’s her winning reply.

“Of course not, I’m a professional. I pick my team on penis length.”
Champions League stuff.
Idiotic question. Hilarious response. 😂 https://t.co/nk4FZymBm8

Not everyone was laughing, however.
This sarcasm is hilarious but imagine the faux outrage if a male coach of a female team jokingly says he picks his team based on boobs size.

I don't think a male coach would be asked such a stupid question in the first place.
