STAR STRIKER SASIC WILL BE MISSED BY ALL
WITH one eye on the World Cup, recently retired German international Celia Sasic added another trophy to her collection this week being named UEFA’s best women’s player in Europe, a further reminder of what the game is losing.
While a number of high profile players decided to hang up their boots post
was Canada, for me Sasic calling it quits the biggest loss.
She was top scorer in the Champions League, which Frankfurt won, the Bundesliga and at the World Cup. Sasic was, and is, a class act.
When she announced she was retiring she drew comparisons to Michael
sport Jordan’s first retirement, leaving the at the top. While I understand why she wanted to end her career, it’s a real shame that we won’t get to see her in the Super League.
How impressive a signing would that have been had the Chelsea rumours been true? Although anyone who has seen the current form of Fran Kirby would argue the Londoners already have their own superstar striker and then some.
