Stéphanie Frappart

Lots of personality and no awe for the 36-year-old from Herblay, even if Dinamo protest for a possible penalty due to Bonucci's detention on Verbic during the first half.

Stephanie Frappart was 13 when she began refereeing, climbing step by step in the footsteps of two pioneers, Switzerland's Nicole Petignat, the first woman to referee the UEFA Cup in 2003, and Germany's Bibiana Steinhaus, the first female referee in a major league European.

"It is at the same time a privilege, an honor and a responsibility. I hope my career will encourage young women to become referees," said Frappart in the summer of 2019, before starting his first full season in Ligue 1, which was interrupted. last March from the coronavirus.

Among the many compliments received in recent years, also that of the Liverpool manager, Juergen Klopp, after the 2019 Super Cup final won against Chelsea: "There was a lot of pressure for this historic moment but she remained calm and did everything to better. He deserves the utmost respect. "
