Arsenal Women manager Jonas Eidevall questions lack of female coaches in football

Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall says a lack of female coaches in the game is a "big problem", describing it as "the most under-tapped resource in professional football".

When that was put to Eidevall on Friday at his pre-match press conference and he was asked how to try to get more female coaches into the game and coaching in the WSL, he said: "I think the question is wrong - it's not the WSL.

"The problem is that you see, in all the technical staff in all the professional clubs on the men's side, how many female technical staff do you have in the game?"
