Swedish Champion, US W-League Champion and Spanish Cup Winner are some of the achievements of Verónica Boquete Giadáns over the years. Now she will add UEFA Women’s Champions League winner medal to her titles, one of the most prestigious trophies in women’s football.

1. FFC Frankfurt v Paris St. Germain - UEFA Women's Champions League Final

This year as a member of FFC Frankfurt, she played key role in the midfield line. Vero has shown consistency and was instant choice in starting eleven the whole season. On their road to the final match against Paris Saint-Germain, FFC Frankfurt haven’t lost a single match in the Champions League. They increased their individual performances and the synergy of the whole team every match during the season.

Vero played with injured foot the entire final match like a true warrior. In the match that ended in dramatic fashion, Frankfurt opened the scoring in the first half before PSG leveled at 1-1 eight minutes later. The result stayed the same almost until the end of the match, with Frankfurt managing to get the winner in the added time to win 2:1. After the match Veronica shared a few words.

“It means the world to me. I’ve been fighting so long to win this trophy, and after last year, which ended in tears, this was more special. And it means that I made the right decision coming to Frankfurt. And it also means that you always have to come back and keep trying and dreaming big. I think the team felt strong, and we saw during the game that they were no better than us, and we felt that in some moments we could hurt them. So we just waited for our moment, and thank God, or thank I don’t know who, the goal came in the last minute. It is always more special to score a late winner, because there is so much tension. Everyone is waiting a bit for extra time, and I think that the team believed we would finish it in the 90 minutes. So it’s also special for me, because always in the big games that I am in, something happens in the last minute – that made me believe until the end.”

LTA Agency’s marquee players – Caroline Seger and Veronica Boquete have reached the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final match for the second year in a row, but this time on opposite teams. Last year they were teammates representing Swedish Tyresö in the final in Lisbon.

This time Seger and French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain won a mega clash against reigning champions VFL Wolfsburg, ending their impressive run of 3 years without defeat. In the other semi-final Vero and 1. FFC Frankfurt, which at the moment are in great shape, absolutely crushed Danish Champions – Brøndby IF, with Vero providing a hat-trick in Copenhagen last Saturday. Unfortunately, Seger’s second yellow card received in the return leg in Paris means that she might be suspended for the final barring last minute clearance from UEFA. Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark in Berlin will stage the 2015 UEFA Women’s Champions League Final at 18.00CET on Thursday 14 May.

Purpose of the meeting was a discussion about variety of issues, such as strategic position and future growth of the Italian market as it has started to provide more prospective talented players, developing of young players such as our Italian international starlet Manuela Giugliano, and expanding in future business areas. The meeting was very productive for both sides to gain information about developing new projects and expanding all areas of LTA Agency in Italy and beyond.
As a result of the meeting, the exclusive mandate of Alessandro Pennestri for Italy has been renewed, and he will continue to be the agency’s official spokesman in the country in the years to come.

We wish Laura success in the new US Professional League with Washington Spirit.”

Laura spoke with the major Spanish newspaper AS just hours before flying to the US and expressed her happiness about the return to the American League: “This experience is totally different; before I felt pressure being the first Spanish player… Now back, having shown all I had to show at the highest level of the game, I will enjoy it without that pressure I had a few years back.” The NWSL regular season begins on April 10 and will run until September 6th followed by the Championship Play-offs.
