With more than 16 million Instagram followers, Alisha Lehmann (24) is the most popular football player in the world. A status that, in addition to a lot of publicity, also brings with it the necessary criticism. This is what the Swiss pass was able to experience.
Furore on but especially off the field
Alisha Lehmann is making a name for herself in women’s football and far beyond. The Swiss attacker has now played in England for five years. From West Ham United it went via Everton to Aston Villa. She is making waves there, but especially off the field.
In recent years, Lehmann has built up her own community and her number of followers on social media has grown exponentially. On January 1, 2022, she had 5 million followers on Instagram, today that number has already grown to sixteen million. Fans who regularly see sultry photos.
Make up controversy
Yet the German also regularly has to swallow some criticism, as he did last week. She competed with Switzerland against Spain and lost 1-7 to the world champion. After the match it was about… the make up she was wearing.
One of the responses: “Don’t you ever feel stupid being the only one with make-up?” or “Less paint and more goals, please.” Criticism that is undoubtedly unpleasant, but which Lehmann usually easily shrugs off.
