ITV News Correspondent Rachel Younger meets England's new women's football manager

England's new women's football manager has told ITV News she wants her players to become role models.

Sarina Wiegman will have her first game in charge next week in a World Cup qualifier.

She has an impressive sporting background having been a former midfielder for the Netherlands - gaining 104 caps for the country before leading them to victory in the Euros and reaching the world cup final.

Wiegman said she is very excited to be the new manager for the Lionesses and would not have seen it coming earlier in her life.

She told ITV News Correspondent Rachel Younger: "It's terrific to be here, it's very special. When I was a little kid, I wouldn't think that I would sit here now, it's great to be here."

She added that the players can be world beaters, and hopes they can have just as positive an impact off the pitch.

"I think once you connect with the fans then you have to show who you are and then you have your values and so when we have these values and life these values, I think that will benefit our game."
