Liverpool’s newest signing Teagan Micah says she is “excited” after completing her move to Merseyside.
The Australian international has joined the Reds from Swedish side FC Rosengard and, asked for her thoughts following the transfer, the goalkeeper said she is looking forward to playing in the WSL:
“I’m excited to be here. It’s Liverpool Football Club, so it’s massive and I’m just really excited for this next chapter in my career. Having good chats with Matt and Pottsy [Joe Potts], the ‘keeper coach, I got a really good vibe from them, and it’s such a good club with a lot of history to it.”
“For me, it was also about getting into the WSL – I know it’s turning into the best league in the world. To be able to compete against the best players in the world is really important for myself, for my career. I can just see this club is going places, it’s investing, so there are a lot of good factors coming together.”
Recruiting the Australian is a big coup for the club and Liverpool manager Matt Beard feels they have got Micah at the “peak of her career”.
That is probably an accurate description. At 25 years of age, the keeper is about to hit her prime, having already won two Swedish league titles with Rosengard over the past couple of years.
Prior to that, Micah had an excellent college career with UCLA, as well as spells with Arna-Bjornar, Melbourne City and Sandviken.
Liverpool fans will be hoping to see their new signing in action at the World Cup
Micah has made the squad for the World Cup, and she will be a high-profile figure over the next few weeks as Australia co-host the competition.
The Matildas kick off their tournament versus the Republic of Ireland on Thursday before they face Nigeria and Canada in their other two group fixtures.
