Lets be honest. If Tihana Nemcic looked like Iain Dowie then no-one would be interested in this story.
Fifth division Croatian side NK Vojakovac Viktorija have grabbed international attention by appointing 24-year-old, former finalist of Croatia Miss Sport, Tihana Nemcic as their new manager.
There is more to Ms Nemcic however than her blonde hair, young age, and pretty face: although we’d like to think those details didn’t detract from her CV.
Nemcic is far from a football novice, having played for Dinamo Zagreb’s women’s team as well as the Croatian female national side.
Nemcic has also gone on the record to defend her appointment.
If a woman and a man have the same professional qualifications for a coaching job, I see no reason why I should not get into male football… The players listen to me and make no problems… I am the head coach and I have full liberty to create and plan the team’s tactics.
