The 9th of July is a day to remember. I became an official player of a new team, a new club and a new Italian adventure with AC Milan. My 14th season in “A” league begins from Milan and I have the chance to came back to be guided by Carolina Morace, my coach during my first experience in the National Italian Women Team.
During the same day, the club presented the new official away kit for the next season 2018/2019. It is white with a black horizontal line on the breast.
PUMA is the new main sponsor as well, and it was the new sponsor of the Italian National Team in 2006 as well, when they won the FIFA World Cup in Germany on 9th of july. During 2013-2016 I was welcomed in Germany, where they gave me the chance to enter in the professional world of soccer.
As new players of the womens’ team we were invited to join the event. I was with Daniela Sabatino, Valentina Giacinti, Manuela Giuliano (ex Brescia) e Marta Carissimi (ex Fiorentina). We took the first pictures and it was for us the first meeting with the mens’ team, notably with the coach Gennaro Gattuso, the captain Leonardo Bonucci, and other 3 players Giacomo Bonaventura, Davide Calabria e Hakan Calhanoglu.
I came back home with a that is still fixed in my mind.
“Red is passion, Black is elegance, Red&Black is Milan“
I am thankful to all the staff who welcomed me in “casa rossonera” and decided to believe on me. I was touched since the first day. My dream still going on and a new year reach of challenges is waiting for me. I am ready to honour one of most qualified soccer club in the world.
