Manchester City sign Swedish international Kosovare Asllani.
Manchester City Women have completed the signing of Swedish international, Kosovare Asllani.
The 26-year-old hot-shot has made 80 appearances for her national team, and joins until the end of the 2017 season, having featured most recently at Club level for French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
Skilful and quick with Champions League experience, the striker has drawn comparisons with superstar and compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and she’s looking forward to showing what she can do in the FA WSL.
“It feels good to be here,” she told mcfc.co.uk. “I’m impressed with the facility and the way the Club has built up this team.
“I really like that everything is in one place – the men’s team, the women’s team and the youth teams. It’s amazing that the women’s side are able to create this environment.
“The main thing that made me want to come here is the way the Club declared their ambitions.
“PSG are a huge club and I learned a lot there – they’re trying to do similar in taking the women’s side to the next level – but here, it feels like the future.
“This team has a lot of potential and ambition. They want to win titles and I want to help them to do so.”
Though born of Kosovar-Albanian descent, ‘Kosse’ represents the Swedish national team, having been born in Kristianstad, after her parents migrated.
