Nathalie Boy de la Tour became the first female president of the French football league on Friday. The LFP general assembly elected Boy de la Tour and also chose a new administrative council on a four-year mandate. The 48-year-old Frenchwoman has been a member of the council since July 2013 – the first woman to hold that role.

Boy de la Tour said her first task was to bring “trust and cohesion” back to the French leagues, after disputes between presidents of clubs in the first and second divisions. She said “we will all work together toward this.”

Former France coach Raymond Domenech – who guided France to the 2006 World Cup final – had his bid for league president put forward by the administrative council but he was rejected by the general assembly.
