Emma Hayes was overcome with emotion after watching the Lionesses secure glory in the European Championships.
England won their first trophy since the men’s team’s World Cup victory in 1966 as they earned a 2-1 victory over Germany at Wembley Stadium.
Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly were the stars of the show, but in truth, it was an all-round team effort from Sarina Wiegman’s side.
England have undoubtedly benefited from the fine work done by those in charge of the Women’s Super League, including the WSL’s biggest clubs.
Among the league’s biggest clubs are Chelsea Women, who earned their third-straight title under Hayes in the 2021/22 campaign, with Millie Bright, Fran Kirby, Bethany England and Lauren James among those under Hayes’ leadership.
Hayes has been a key figure in raising the profile of women’s football in England, and speaking after the Lionesses’ victory at Wembley, Hayes showed exactly what the victory means to everyone within the sport.
Speaking to ESPN, Hayes said: “Honestly, I can’t find my words. This whole place has exploded. These amazing players, this amazing atmosphere.
“I know that everybody has worked so hard for a day like today and I’m just so overwhelmed and proud.
