Alisha Lehmann, born on January 21, 1999, in Tägertschi, Switzerland, has carved a significant niche for herself in the world of football. From a young age, Lehmann demonstrated a keen interest in the sport, inspired by her brother and two cousins. This early passion blossomed into a career, with Lehmann joining FC Konolfingen's youth academy and embarking on her professional journey in 2016. Lehmann's talent soon caught the eye of larger clubs, leading to her signing with Newly-Professional FA Women's Super League's West Ham United from BSC YB Frauen in August 2018. Her impact at West Ham was immediate and substantial; she scored eight goals, helping the club reach the Women's FA Cup final. Her performances earned her a contract extension in April 2019. During her time at West Ham, Lehmann made significant contributions, including key goals in matches against Reading and Brighton that showcased her skill and poise under pressure. In January 2021, Lehmann's career took a new turn as she moved to Everton on loan, marking another chapter in her evolving career. She scored her first goal for Everton against Birmingham City. This stint was followed by a move to Aston Villa for the 2021-22 season, where she continued to display her footballing prowess. She scored her first two goals for Aston Villa against Sunderland and played a decisive role in a match against Leicester City, scoring a winner in the 93rd minute. Her performances were acknowledged with the Women's Supporters' Player of the Season award for 2021–22. In July 2022, she signed a one-year contract extension with Aston Villa, recognizing her contributions to the team. Internationally, Lehmann's journey is equally impressive. She made her debut for the Swiss U-17 national team in April 2015 and played a crucial role in her team's success in various tournaments, including the U-17 and U-19 European Championships. Her senior debut for the Switzerland national team came in October 2017, and she scored her first international goal in March 2018 against Finland at the Cyprus Cup. Off the field, Lehmann's life is as vibrant as her career. She is openly bisexual, having previously identified as a lesbian. Her relationships, including one with Swiss national teammate Ramona Bachmann and later with Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz, have been a subject of public interest. She has also made a name for herself in the world of fashion and modeling, working with brands like Coca-Cola and Adidas. As of December 2023, Lehmann's influence extends beyond the pitch, with a staggering following of over 16 million on Instagram, making her the world's most-followed women's footballer. Her journey from a young girl inspired by her family to a globally recognized football star and social media influencer is a testament to her talent, determination, and the impact she has had on and off the field.
