Female WSL managers: Four in 12 bosses are women - is this a cause for concern?

n November last year the Football Association released a strategy for the future of women's football entitled Inspiring Positive Change.

Among the various promises and targets, English football's governing body stated an aim for 75% of female coaches to be in manager or head coach roles.

With the victorious England team at Euro 2022 being led by Sarina Wiegman, and Chelsea manager Emma Hayes being one of the most recognisable bosses in the domestic game currently, it appears at first that English football is being driven from the top towards this ambitious aim.
