The FA prepares to appoint its first president in 157 years

The English Football Federation (FA) plans to appoint a female president for the first time in its 157-year history, according to ‘The Times’. Is about Debbie hewitt, 57, a senior executive who in 2011 was appointed MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for business and public sector services.

The British newspaper adds that several women are on a short list that was drawn up after the march of Greg clarke as president.

At 63, he had to resign last November after a major scandal after referring to black and Asian footballers as “colored”, prompting unanimous condemnation from the whole of society.

On another occasion, asked why he considered that there were no more women who were goalkeepers, he said that “girls do not like to be hit with balls.”
