Emma Hayes has compared developing Chelsea Women into a trophy-winning team to nurturing a child.The 45-year-old has been awarded an OBE for services to football in the New Year Honours List in recognition largely of her work in helping the Blues establish themselves as the top club in the English game. Since taking over as manager from Matt Beard in August 2012 she has led Chelsea to 11 trophies, including four Women’s Super League titles, but insists it has been a painstaking process for her and everyone else at the club.
