Former Lyon Manager Jean-Luc Vasseur Has Been Appointed As Everton Women’s Manager

Posted by

Everton Women have appointed Jean-Luc Vasseur as their manager until June 2024, after he led Lyon to a Women’s Champions League victory.

Willie Kirk was fired following a bad start to the season, and Vasseur takes his place. Lyon won the Champions League, French league, Coupe de France, Trophée des Championnes, and Women’s International Champions Cup in 2019-20, earning the Frenchman the Uefa women’s coach of the year award.

Vasseur was fired by Lyon in April 2021, near the end of a disappointing season in which the club was knocked out of the Champions League by Paris St-Germain, who went on to win the league title ahead of Lyon.

“I’ve come here to write new history with Everton and to win titles,” Vasseur said. “We have a lot of talent and resources so I think there is good capacity to improve. I have the ambition to build a team that can achieve Champions League qualification. We have to be patient and fight to win.”
