Former US Women’s National Team coach Pia Sundhage was awarded the Women’s Coach of the Year award at Monday’s Ballon d’Or gala, and to the surprise of everyone there, promptly broke out into song!
After first thanking her staff, Sundhage turned to her two star players in the audience and said: “I look at Alex [Morgan] and Abby [Wambach] and all your teammates I have only one thing to say…” She then belted out an acapella version of Bob Dylan’s “If Not for You.”
Hats off to her for a job well done, and a bold acceptance speech. And she didn’t even blush!!
