A new adventure in the USA – Immediately: Bachmann leaves Paris Saint-Germain and moves to Houston – Sports

  • Ramona Bachmann will leave Paris Saint-Germain for the Houston Dash in the North American Soccer League with immediate effect.
  • The 33-year-old has a three-year contract in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL).
  • A year before the start of the European Championship on home soil, the striker dares to embark on another great adventure.

Ramona Bachmann has played less for Paris Saint-Germain recently. This is despite the fact that she felt that she was able to help her team by giving the best performances. Now the Swiss national escapes this difficult situation and moves to the Houston Dash in the NWSL on a 3-year contract.

“The offer has been on the table since last year,” Bachmann revealed on the sidelines of the Nati rally in Pfäffikon/SZ. In Paris, I held on to the possibility of winning the Champions League until the end. That big trophy that's still missing.

Sundhage also recommended the change

But in the end, personal satisfaction is what is most important to her. The fact that she was offered a three-year contract at the age of 33 also convinced her. In a young team with new Spanish coach Fran Alonso, who allows them to play according to their style of play, Bachmann hopes to contribute to the success through goals and assists. In 3 matches this season, Houston collected 4 points.

The fact that the change comes almost a year before the European Championships in Switzerland does not seem to be a problem for Bachmann. During the first phone call, I told Natty's coach, Pia Sundhage, who has coached the United States for a long time, about the interest from abroad and got her opinion.

The only thing missing is a visa

Bachmann and her wife are already sitting on packed suitcases. Once the national team finishes the matches against Turkey and Azerbaijan, the visa should also be in place and the adventure in the USA should begin.

She doesn't want to decide yet whether this will be the last change in Bachmann's great career. “As long as my body still supports it, and I'm motivated, I want to play,” she explains. Houston's first official match will be at home against the Washington Spirit on April 12.
