Head coach Hayes put into hall of fame

By Paul Lagan

The newly launched Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame is delighted to announce Chelsea head coach Emma Hayes as the final inductee of 2021.

Hayes's record of four league titles surpasses any other manager during the Super League era, and she has also established Chelsea as one of Europe’s giants during that time, managing some of the world’s best players.

She has also won two Continental Tyres League Cups and two Women’s FA Cups, while she recently passed 150 league games in charge of her club.

Chairwoman of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame panel, Kelly Simmons, said: “Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest individual honour offered by the league and I am delighted that Emma has been inducted. Her record is incredible, but she’s so much more than that. She’s a great ambassador for the league, who works tirelessly behind the scenes, whilst also encouraging the development of coaches.

“She’s taken her knowledge into the broadcast world to become a great pundit, and I feel we are really lucky to have her in the league.”

Hayes is the final inductee into the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame for 2021, joining Fara Williams, Rachel Yankey and Kelly Smith. Extended interviews with all four inductees will be available to watch on Sky Sports’ ‘Inside the WSL’ show at 6pm this evening on Sky Sports Premier League.
