A German male football team coach shocked a journalist who asked her a ‘gender-sensitive’ question when she retorted that she picked her team members based on the size of their penis.
Imke Wübbenhorst, who is the first woman to coach a football club in Germany’s top five divisions gave a sarcastic response in an interview with German Newspaper, Die Welt.
The Journalists had asked her if the players had to cover themselves up before she goes into their changing room, and the coach retorted – “Of course not. I’m a professional. I pick the team on penis size.”
The 30-year old Wübbenhorst took over at Cloppenburg, a fifth-tier club playing in the Niedersachsenliga, in December and was tasked with steering the relegation-threatened side away from the Oberliga Niedersachsen drop zone.
A former Cloppenburg player herself, the one time Germany Under-23 international had been employed in coaching roles with the club’s women’s team since hanging up her boots in 2016.
