Female Coach: I Pick My Team Based On Penis Size

A female coach, who recently became the first woman to take charge of a men's team in Germany's fifth tier, had a sarcastic response when asked a sexist question by a journalist.

Imke Wubbenhorst, a former Germany youth international, was appointed as coach of BV Cloppenburg's senior men's team in December.

Despite not having managed a single game yet, Wubbenhorst has opened up about sexist questions she has already received since taking over.

She told German publication Welt in an interview how one journalist asked whether she warned players to put pants on when she enters the dressing room.

"Of course not, I'm a professional," she responded sarcastically. "I pick my players based on their penis size."

Wubbenhorst then explained that she wants to be judged on results rather than her gender.

"The topic bounces off me. I want me to be judged on the athletic performance, not on whether I'm a woman or a man," she added.

"I will not have any problems with (asserting) authority. I'm a teacher."

The 30-year-old was in charge of Cloppenburg's senior women's team before the club appointed her as coach of their relegation-threatened men's side.

"It was an easy decision to let go of gender in the evaluation process," board member Herbert Schroder said, according to BBC Sports.

"We only looked at quality."
