PARIS - French football's ruling body the Professional Football League (LFP) Friday elected their first woman president with Nathalie Boy De La Tour winning a four-year term. Nathalie who previously held a position with the "Football Foundation" which promotes the game in the community takes over from Frederic Thiriez who resigned last month after 14 years. Former France coach Raymond Domenech withdrew from the running after he was rejected in the first round by the general assembly. The LFP which oversees the 40 professional clubs in France's top two leagues – Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 – has been in crisis since Thiriez' departure. Divisions between the top clubs, including PSG, Lyon and Marseille, and smaller sides flared up in October and the vote for a president could not be taken.
