Football: Georgieva surprises with a move to PSG

“I think every player can be lucky to play with such good players at such a big club,” Georgieva said in an interview that can be seen on the PSG website. “I’m very proud of the opportunity. I’m a technically strong player. I also think I play very patiently. I’m a team player and I’ve always wanted to play with the best and win as many titles as possible. I have big dreams and big goals so it’s the perfect club. The club also has big dreams and goals, that fits perfectly,” said the defender, who is focused on fighting.

The local women’s soccer scene is also quite surprised by this transfer coup. Most recently, Georgieva was with SC Sand in the German Bundesliga for four years, after relegation her contract expired and she obviously made good use of the European Championship stage. The former St. Pölten player was not even seeded at the European Championships in England, but acted as a backup for Viktoria Schnaderbeck. The ÖFB captain, who only announced the end of her career on Wednesday, had to pass in the quarterfinals. Georgieva not only jumped in, but headed the post early in the game.

In the coming season she can now not only hope for assignments in Division 1 Feminine, but also for some in the Champions League. To participate in the group stage, PSG still have to clear a qualification hurdle. After record champions Lyon, Paris is currently the second force and finished second, eleven points behind. A year earlier, however, they had won their first and only league title so far, and there are also a total of three cup victories.

Next Austrian at a well-known club

Austria also has a legionnaire in the top French league in the coming season. It was only this summer that ÖFB record player Sarah Puntigam moved from Montpellier back to Germany to 1. FC Köln. Most team players play in the neighboring country, including Sarah Zadrazil at Bayern Munich. Bayern’s record player Carina Wenninger was loaned from there at her own request to AS Roma, ÖFB goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger is number one in the box at Arsenal in the English upper house.
