Emma Hayes makes Star Wars quote ahead of US job

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes stated that she’s drawing inspiration from Star Wars and The Mandalorian for her final season in charge of the club.

The Blues boss will depart the club at the end of the season to assume the role of USWNT coach. Before her departure, she aims to lead the London team to a seventh Women’s Super League title and contend for the Women’s Champions League. Nonetheless, her focus is more on continuing Star Wars than her remaining months in charge.

When asked if she has additional motivation at Chelsea due to her impending departure, Hayes replied:

“The Force Awakens, Star Wars episode six [seven, sic], that gave me a lot of inspiration last night. I’m certain that the resistance continue to inspire and we can keep at bay that evil empire. For now, all I’m thinking about is I need to get onto The Mandalorian.”

When the reporter admitted he doesn’t know much about Star Wars, Emma Hayes responded:

 “The force is with you. I can see it in you. Don’t worry.”

After 12 years leading the reigning English champions, the 47-year-old will head to the USA to begin her new role. Her initial assignment will be guiding the team in the Olympic Games in Paris this summer, aiming to secure a fifth gold medal in the competition.

Hayes’ Chelsea team aims to advance in the FA Women’s League Cup when they face Sunderland on Wednesday. Subsequently, they seek to extend their three-point lead at the top of the WSL against second-placed Manchester City on Friday.
