Amelie Rybeck: a reinforcement

Published on the 01 December 2009 à 15:39 by OT

The Swedish fullback Amelie Rybeck should sign for OL in the coming hours, completing a female team lacking in defenders.

Since the start of the season, OL’s women side have been on the lookout for defenders. The injury to the captain Sandrine Dusang accelerated the recruitment process. On the advice of her former team-mates Lotta Schelin and Ingvild Stensland, the Swede Amelie Rybeck arrived in Lyon today from Göteborg : « Lotta and Ingvild have said a lot of good about the club. I know the mens team is very good with Kim Källström, but the female team is excellent as well. I’m very happy to be able to play in the Champions League and hope that I will progress with Lyon. »

The 27 year old fullback who has just finished 4th in the Swedish league with FC Kopparbergs, still has to pass a medical today and tomorrow before officially signing with OL for the rest of the season.
