Women’s football legend Carolina Morace is set to coach Malta women duo Emma Lipman and Rachel Cuschieri at Lazio.
The announcement came from the club after Lazio’s 1-0 defeat to Ravenna in their 12th Serie B fixture of the season. Emma Lipman was in the starting formation for this game while Rachel Cuschieri sat out due to a minor injury.
Morace will replace Ashraf Seleman as coach.
Lazio are currently fourth on 21 points after 12 games, four points distant from second-place Riozzese Como but with two games in hand. The top two teams from Serie B get promoted into the top-tier.
Morace is an illustrated figure in the women’s game, having scored 105 goals in 150 caps with the Italian national team. She is also a legendary figure at Lazio having played during the 1980’s with the Rome-based club.
As a manager, she was the first woman to take over a men’s side when she was appointed Viterbese coach.
She has already coach Lazio, back in 1998, and was at the helm of Milan’s debut season in Serie A back in 2019 where she finished third and was the only coach to beat Juventus that season (3-0).
She was also coach of Italy, Canada and Trinidad-Tobago at international level.
At Lazio, Lipman played 12 games and scored 2 goals so far whereas Cuschieri also played 12 games and grabbed one goal to her name.
