Chelsea Women: Emma Hayes

Chelsea Women head coach Emma Hayes believes that winning coach of the year took her back to her childhood when they were just dreams. Hayes took home the accolade after she helped Chelsea to the domestic treble last season along with the Champions League final. She was shocked but happy to receive the award for her troubles last season.

“That was a shocking moment – but I think I was more worried that the Amazon driver at the front door was going to knock it down!” Chelsea Women head coach Emma Hayes said. “There are so many different amazing coaches that are deserving of these awards, just as with the players, and I feel like they always create controversial conversation in and around it. For me, I’m a team player, and I feel like I believe in the team awards. So I’m a bit uncomfortable with it to be honest with it you. However, it is what it is, I’m happy to receive it and also grateful that I work with such brilliant people here at Chelsea that allow me to do my job every day.”

“When they called my name out…the first thing I thought about was that little kid, kicking a ball against the wall, and whether I was commentating to myself about scoring a goal in a cup final or leading a team,” she added. “That’s the first thought that came into my head – ‘oh my God, as a little girl I dreamed about these things, I’ve just had a dream turn into instant reality. And then I felt instantly embarrassed!”
