Episode 77 – Interview: Tessel Middag pt. 1

Rangers WFC midfielder Tessel Middag began her career with Den Haag, then played for her childhood heroes Ajax, before moving on to Manchester City, West Ham United and Fiorentina, representing the Netherlands national team 44 times along the way.

In the first half of this fascinating, entertaining chat with Daniel Gray, Tessel talks us through the street games and pavement bounces of her youth, playing in boys’ teams until the age of 18 and her  pride in representing the very first Ajax women’s team. Plus, anger and amusement in the archives as Tessel talks about the historical suppression of women’s football, Likely Lads score avoidance and the joys of ‘next goal wins’.
