The players at Polish football club Warta Poznan would have no problem finding motivation to do well on the pitch.

Not when beautiful former model Izabella Lukomska-Pyzalska owns the club.

The 34-year-old is raising temperatures for being arguably the hottest football boss on the planet after stepping in to save the second-tier football club from the brink of dissolution by paying off its debts earlier this year.

Having starred in Playboy magazine, the 2001 PlayMate of the Year now runs the club's finances and hopes to see Warta Poznan into the Polish top division.

She has taken a hands-on approach and has asked that players and staff around the club call her "Presi" - while she has also been out on the training pitch to keep her relegation-threatened players on their toes.

"I'm going to impose discipline and good organisation, as you would in any other successful business," she said at the time.

Her team has struggled the last ten years but ever since she took over, season tickets at the football club have soared.

Just in time too, as the team celebrates its 100th anniversary next year.

Her good looks even caught the attention of Real Madrid and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo during a Portugal team training session in June.

But sorry Cristiano, she's married.
