The new season of the Women’s Super League is set to kick off this weekend, with Tottenham Hotspur hosting West Ham at The Hive on Saturday. They’ll do so with both of their head coaches having committed their future to the club. Today, Spurs Women announced that co-head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros have signed new deals keeping them in charge until the end of the 2021-2022 season.
Amoros and Hills are an unusual thing in modern soccer — a two-person leadership team. Hills has been manager at Tottenham for the past 13 seasons. The co-head coach arrangement started last season, but Amoros and Hills have been working together at the club for years now and Spurs has thrived under their leadership. The pair earned the WSL Manager of the Month award in September of last season. Both have repeatedly say how much they value the way they work together and are looking forward to continuing to help Spurs improve in this, their second season in the top flight of English women’s football.
