England star Rachel Williams speaks about her 'day job'
There aren't many footballers who have been asked to "strip out" their manager's living room, but England and Birmingham City Ladies star Rachel Williams is one who can count herself as a fully-fledged member of that elite club.
When the 24-year-old isn't scoring goals and spearheading Birmingham's FA WSL title assault, she can be found plastering living rooms and stripping kitchens, and despite the physical nature of the job, she insists she "wouldn't change it for the world".
"I love my job," the England international and former Team GB member said.
"Every day it's a different job and you meet new people, but it does have its bad aspects with all the dust and that probably isn't good for my health. It is hard, physical work, and I think people watch and they think it looks easy. But I tell you it's not, it's physical.
"When you're doing it 7 'til 4 every day, then you've got to train at night, it can take its toll on your body. I've got terrible hands. I just keep moisturising and I have to try and look after myself!"
Williams, who is Birmingham's second top scorer with nine goals in 18 outings this term, also explained how her former boss made the most of her skills off the pitch.
"I was at Doncaster, and I did quite a lot of work for my old manager, John Buckley," she added.
"He had me strip out all of his front room and knock his front room and his dining room into one."
