Alisha Lehmann statements in an interview
During an interview done recently with The Times, Alisha Lehmann said: “A lot of people only see the social side of my life, via Instagram and not actually how I play football.
“About this, I’m sometimes disappointed, because I work hard every day.
“I train every day and I want to be the best player I can be.
Alisha further added:
“They don’t really know how I play.
“I’m always saying, watch a game please…and then they’re surprised.”
The Aston Villa forward also emphasized that it is possible to be feminine in nature and also play the round leather game.
Alisha continued: “The message I want to give to people is that you can literally be however you want and still play football.
“Use make-up or do the things you like, do your nails, do your eyelashes, and still play football. It’s not a side you have to pick.
“It’s really important that no one changes because people tell you to.
“When I was younger a lot of people told me, ‘Oh, you can’t wear make-up. You can’t wear your lashes when you play’.
She furthered her statement saying: “At one point I thought, ‘Why not?’ It’s normal and it doesn’t hurt anyone if I do it.
“I feel like we should see this as normal. Because I’m someone that likes it a lot.
“I want to look really feminine. It’s my passion.”
At what point did Alisha Lehmann social media following skyrocket?
She said: “It really started when I played at the Under-19 Euros in Switzerland,” she said. “After that I made the transfer to West Ham. I think that was the turning point, when my Instagram kind of blew up.
“If I am honest, now I don’t feel any different. Maybe you get recognised sometimes a bit more but I don’t feel like I’m special.
“I am a footballer that goes to training every day — it’s nothing crazy cool.”
Alisha who has attracted the attention of a lot of male fans due to her physique wants her fans to come see her in action.
