Hayes reveals managerial inspirations in bid for Champions League win.

The Chelsea manager assisted the Blues in advancing to the knockout stages of the Champions League with Wednesday’s 2-1 victory over Real Madrid. He is regarded as a pioneer in women’s sports.

Hayes, who won the Football Writers’ Association Tribute Award for the first time as a woman, disclosed her preferred managers for 2024: “From whom does one fail to gain knowledge? “I take pleasure in following [Pep] Guardiola’s team, the Genoa team, and [Luciano] Spalletti’s teams as well,” Hayes confirmed to Standard Sport.


“This season, I am fond of Luis Enrique’s squads and Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen. “Observing Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp’s rock-and-roll football is always entertaining.”This season, Ange Postecoglou and Spurs’s squad are phenomenal to observe; I adore it. “My son detests football (always being shown on television), but I adore it.”


As part of an extensive interview regarding her football life, Hayes expressed her aspiration for Chelsea to secure the Champions League victory for the current season.


Before withdrawing from the European competition in order to represent the United States at the Paris Olympics, this is her final opportunity.She further discussed the impact that the legendary manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, has had on her career while in a reflective mood: “I will never forget the LMA Awards, when we exited the lift and he told me, ‘Doing two doubles in a row was difficult, but I wanted three; it always irritated me that I couldn’t go one step further.'”


“In my opinion, the crucial factor in accomplishing it has always been an evolution,” he inquired. In my opinion, one should not be overly loyal to other individuals. “If you become overly devoted to players who have previously served you, it is time to say goodnight.”
