As the current manager of Lyon, Bompastor holds the distinction of being the first individual to secure victory in the Women’s Champions League as both a player and a manager, a feat achieved in 2021.

While Bompastor’s contract with Lyon is set to run until 2025, reports from The Telegraph indicate that an early release has been arranged, facilitating her earlier departure.

It’s anticipated that Bompastor will bring her assistant, Camille Abily, to Chelsea alongside her.

Stepping into the role vacated by the highly successful Emma Hayes, Bompastor faces the challenge of maintaining the high standards set during Hayes’ tenure. Under Hayes’ guidance, Chelsea has amassed an impressive collection of 15 trophies, establishing themselves as one of the premier forces in women’s football.

As Hayes prepares to conclude her tenure, Chelsea remains competitive across multiple fronts in the WSL, FA Cup, and the prestigious Champions League, potentially setting the stage for a dramatic clash against Bompastor’s Lyon in the latter stages of the competition.

Before embarking on her managerial career, Bompastor enjoyed a distinguished playing career, earning 156 caps for France and making 250 club appearances, including 113 for Lyon.
