LYON, France — Europe's most successful women's soccer team has hired a woman as its coach for the first time with Lyon's appointment of Sonia Bompastor to replace Jean-Luc Vasseur.
The seven-time European champion on Tuesday parted ways with Vasseur after the team recently was knocked out of the Women's Champions League at the quarterfinal stage.
Lyon had won five consecutive Champions League titles but was eliminated by French rival Paris Saint-Germain this season. The 14-time French champions also trail PSG in the domestic league by one point.
The 40-year-old Bompastor, a former France midfielder and defender who played six seasons at Lyon, has a contract through June 2023. She was director of Lyon's women's academy for the past eight years.
Diversity Of Film Casts “Skyrocketed” In 2020: UCLA Film Report
Cast diversity in films “skyrocketed” last year, according to the latest inclusion report from UCLA. “People of color and women made tremendous strides among film leads since the last report, cementing 2020 as a watershed moment for diversity,” the study says. “For the first time, both groups nearly reached proportionate representation among film leads.” And while 2020 was certainly Hollywood’s most atypical year in terms of how films were released, the report concluded that it “was the industry’s most successful year on the diversity front.

“I am a competitor, and I like challenges,” Bompastor said. “We have everything we need to win the title and rediscover the (Lyon) DNA on the pitch. I’m going to put that into place.”
Vasseur was the UEFA women's coach of the year in 2019-20, his first season with Lyon.
