Three weeks after the founding of the women’s soccer department, LASK found its first head coach: Lisa Alzner is moving from the women’s soccer center in Upper Austria to ASK. The 22-year-old will take over the sporting management of the department for girls’ and women’s football.
“It is great that a well-known club like LASK approaches women’s football strategically and with ideas behind it. Our concept takes into account all levels, we have considered everything from grassroots to top-level sport,” said Alzner, looking forward to the task at ASK.
“The conversations with Lisa couldn’t have gone better from the first meeting,” explains LASK managing director Andreas Protil. “She is both young and advanced in her trainer training and embodies exactly what we wanted: ambition, specialist knowledge and experience.”
Lisa Alzner was a player in the women’s Bundesliga, as well as in the U17 and U19 national team, before she ended her active career at the age of 18 due to injury.
Immediately afterwards, Alzner embarked on a career as a coach and began studying sports, which she will complete in the summer. “A strategic and sustainable approach is very important to me and I see that at LASK. The project particularly appeals to me because I see it as a great opportunity to advance women’s football in Upper Austria and throughout the entire country,” said Alzner.
