Adelina Engman ready for Hammarby – the sports director reveals long-term interest: & quot; Tried on several occasions to get rid of her & quot;

National team midfielder Adelina Engman stays in Sweden. Hammarby IF confirms on its website that the Ålander is ready for a move to Stockholm. I am convinced that we will fight at the top, says Engman.

“An environment where I feel at home”, Adelina Engman said in Yle Sport’s interview after the move from Montpellier in the French league to Växjö in the Damallsvenskan.

Sportingly, the season went under the bench when Växjö left the league and national team coach Anna Signeul immediately stated that she would like to see Engman leave the bottom team for a better club.

Said and done. Now a move to the top team Hammarby IF awaits. The club writes on its website that Engman signed on for two seasons.

“Now her career will take on new momentum in a forward-leaning green and white team, which should suit her remarkable playing style perfectly,” the club writes.

– I felt that I wanted to be in a club that is fighting for the top. It is very important to me and I am convinced that we will do it, Engman comments on the website.

“Love to play in front of an audience”

Tonight, Engman will accompany Finland to meet Sweden at Gamla Ullevi in ​​her former hometown of Gothenburg. Over 14,000 tickets have been sold for the match. Engman can at best expect such audiences in “Bajen” as well.

When Hammarby met local rival AIK in October, they did so in front of 18,000 spectators. “It’s just the beginning”, the future teammate Eva Nyström stated for Yle Sporten then.

– Hammarby has a huge supporter culture and I love to play in front of an audience, Engman also admits.

Sports director Johan Lager, in turn, reveals that the green and whites have had their eyes on Engman for a long time.

– We have followed Adelina for some years and tried on several occasions to free her from Montpellier, without succeeding in doing so. Now there was finally the opportunity and then the negotiation went quickly, he says and continues:

– We see that Adelina will fit into our game, as she adds speed but can also be involved in building up our attacking game. She can play in several positions going forward which gives us flexibility. She will bring her experience from Chelsea, Montpellier and the national team to Hammarby.
