Canadian national team goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc joins Sky Blue FC.
Just a day after we reported that Sky Blue FC had signed striker Manon Melis and Defender Candace Chapman, the team continue to strengthen their squad with experienced goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc.
Le Blanc and Chapman both play for the Canadian national team and will provide great defensive strategy for Sky Blue.
Sky Blue FC's head coach Jim Gabarra commented to Sky Blue:
“We are very excited to have Karina come back to New Jersey, she is a very flamboyant and experienced goalkeeper who will bring a lot of leadership to the field in terms of motivation. She will be a great addition for us in goal, as well as personality-wise.”
Sky Blue FC's assistant coach Emma Hayes commented to Sky Blue:
“KK is an experienced, international class goalkeeper, she will lead from the back, is a great organizer and brings a lot of spirit and intensity to the team. We are delighted to bring her back to New Jersey.”
While terms have been reached between the players and Sky Blue, it will not be confirmed official until done so by WPS.
