Having refereed 80 second-tier games in Germany already, Steinhaus understands the challenge.

She has also worked in the second division of the Bundesliga for a decade.

Steinhaus is believed to be dating former English referee Howard Webb, who famously took charge of the 2010 World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands.

Referee Bibiana Steinhaus has been promoted to the Bundesliga next season as the first women working games in Germany‚à "ôs top division". I am used to this pressure and am convinced I will find my feet quickly.

"I don't seek out public attention and my colleagues know me well enough to know that".

"My style during a game is characterised by intensive communication", she said.

"My dream has always been to referee professional football matches". Steinhaus coolly brushed him off, while German media heavily criticized the Spaniard, who now manages Manchester City.

The player, Kerem Demirbay, was roundly criticized for his remark and banned five games by the league.

"I've been following her path for many years and am very much looking forward to it", he said.
