Vero joined her new club last summer from 1. FFC Frankfurt with whom she won one of the most prestigious awards in women’s club football – UEFA Women’s Champions League. Unfortunately, she has been injured since she joined Bayern for pre-season following the World Cup in Canada. Finally, after three months out, she made her official debut last Friday in the League match at Bayer Leverkusen.

Vero came on as a sub in the 71st minute of the game, when the result was 0:3 to Bayern and recorded 20 minutes of action. The match finished 0:5, and after the match Vero was very happy that she played a few minutes after a long time out of competition. Following such a long injury, it’s extremely important to carefully manage her match fitness levels and playing time.

LTA Agency wishes Vero good health and many trophies with FC Bayern.

The quarterfinals draw will be held 27th of November in Nyon, Switzerland, and the other 6 clubs that have qualified for this stage are: Wolfsburg (GER), Slavia Praha (CZE), Lyon (FRA), the reigning champions – FFC Frankfurt (GER), Brescia (ITA), and Barcelona (ESP).

Rosengård’s best performance in Champions League to date was in 2004 when they made it to the semifinals. This time the Swedish champions will add to their fire power upfront the top goal scorer of the past season in Sweden- Gaelle Enganamouit as she will join the club after the New Year.

Caroline Seger will make a remarkable third consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals of the Champions League reaching the finals both in 2014 and 2015, unfortunately missing this year’s final in Berlin due to suspension as PSG succumbed to a narrow defeat to FFC Frankfurt.

The Cote D’Ivoire international won both 2015 Russian Cup and 2015 Russian League in the same season.

Zvezda-2005 Perm defended their Supreme Division title with a 5:0 home victory against Chertanovo on the last day of the season. Nahi joined Zvezda at the beginning of 2014 and won the league in her first year in Russia. This season she added the Russian Cup making it a double.

The second place in the top Russian League was deservedly won by FC Rossiyanka with two LTA players in the squad – Cote D’Ivoire international forward Ines N’Rrehy and Cameroon international winger Gabrielle Aboudi. They finished just two points behind the champions from Zvezda and have earned automatic qualification to the 2016-2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Hedvig Lindahl, Caroline Seger and Gaelle Enganamouit were all recognized for their achievements at the Swedish Football Federation’s annual awards ceremony – Fotbollsgalan 2015.

As expected Gaelle took home the “golden boot” for the best goal scorer in Sweden with her 18 goals in Damallsvenskan, which have helped her team Eskilstuna United to finish second in the League and qualify for the Champions League.

Seger was deservedly named best midfielder of the year. She was excellent in her first season in France as she led Paris Saint-Germain to second in the League, to the UEFA Women’s Champions League final in Berlin, and was named team captain.

The star of the night was Hedvig with her double award for best goalkeeper of the year and most importantly for the best Swedish female player – the “Diamantbollen,” which she has won for the first time in her career. Hedvig has had a remarkable year leading Chelsea FC to a historic double by winning FA Women’s Cup and FA Women’s Super League in her first year in England.

Unfortunately Hedvig wasn’t able to attend the ceremony held at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm due to the preparations for an important Champions League match against German powerhouse VFL Wolfsburg, and her reception speech was broadcast in a special video.

Olivia Schough has signed a contract extension with Eskilstuna United.
The 24-year-old Swedish international became the third client of LTA who has recently signed a new contract with Eskilstuna, after Malin Diaz and Glódís Perla have done the same following the successful 2015 season.

Olivia came to Eskilstuna United from the Russian team FC Rossiyanka in the beginning of this season, which has proved to be her best season in Damallsvenskan so far. She appeared in every single League match for Eskilstuna playing a key role in the team’s impressive performance and second place finish. She recorded six goals and seven assists in those games.

The 23-year old Cameroonian international forward Gaëlle Enganamouit signed a contract with Swedish giants FC Rosengård.

Gaelle became the best goalscorer in Damallsvenskan this season with 18 goals, the achievement which earned her the title – “Shooting Queen.” It has been a great season for both Gaelle and Eskilstuna United, who finished second in the League just a single point behind the champions Rosengård and earned the qualification for next year’s UEFA Women’s Champions League. Gaelle leaves Eskilstuna United after 2 highly successful seasons in which she has rapidly progressed to become the player she is today.
during the  FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 Group C match between Cameroon and Ecuador at BC Place Stadium on June 8, 2015 in Vancouver, Canada.

This year has been additionally remarkable for Gaelle as she took part in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada with Cameroon National Team the only African side advancing past the group stage and Gaelle becoming the first African player ever to score a hat-trick in a FIFA Women’s World Cup final tournament match.

“I’d like to congratulate Gaelle on her hard work and dedication over the past two years and also give credit to Viktor Eriksson (head coach at Eskilstuna United) who has been a key figure in providing Gaelle with the necessary instruction, support, and confidence without which it would have been impossible for her to reach the level that now has earned her the move to the Swedish champions.” said LTA Agency’s managing partner, Anton Maksimov.

Gaelle will join her new club in January and is fully focused on taking up the new challenge of continuing to develop her individual game and helping FC Rosengård to win back the Swedish title and progress as far as possible in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The 20-year-old Cote D’Ivoire international won the 2015 Lithuanian League also known as “A Lyga.”
Elloh CL

Elloh’s team, Gintra-Universitetas of Siauliai, finished the season with a huge lead over the second place LSU-Zara and with positive 88 goals difference. In the final match against Zalgiris Vilnius, Rebecca scored a hat-trick, and the final result was 9:0. Interesting fact is that two other LTA players played almost the whole season with Gintra and most certainly have played an important part of winning the title – the Cote D’Ivoire internationals Ange N’Guessan (winger) and Rita Akaffou (midfielder).

All three of the Elephantes Dames (as Cote D’Ivoire national Team players are called) have made their debut for Gintra in the preliminary round of this year’s UEFA Women’s Champions League, and Rebecca Elloh is expected to return next year when Gintra will attempt to go through to the main round of the Champions League again after the success they had in 2014-2015 competition when they reached the round of 16.

LTA Agency’s new client Glódís Perla Viggósdóttir has extended her contract with Eskilstuna United for another year.

The 20-year old Icelandic international has instantly become a constant figure in the starting eleven for Eskilstuna since her arrival in Sweden at the beginning of the 2015 Damallsvenskan season. She was one of only three players who played every minute of every match in this year’s successful campaign, which brought Eskilstuna second place in the League and automatic qualification for 2016-2017 UEFA Women’s Champions League. The young talent has already earned 34 caps (scoring twice) for senior Iceland Women’s National Team.

Glódís Perla said this after the signing: “I’m really happy to have extended my contract and to be a part of Eskilstuna United for another year. It is a good club with good potential, and I look forward to continue where we left off and develop our game to the next level next season.”

Another player represented by LTA won a title in England in 2015.
Following Hedvig Lindahl’s League and FA Cup double success, it is Arsenal’s top striker Natalia Pablos Sanchon who has won the Continental Tyres Cup.

Spanish international joined Arsenal in the preseason, and what’s better than finishing the first season at the club with a trophy. Having already reached a final of a competition in England previously with Bristol Academy (2013 FA Cup Final ironically lost to her current club), Natalia has now gone one better by winning her first domestic trophy with Arsenal. She has continued to prove that she is one of the elite strikers in England scoring 11 goals this season, which makes her Arsenal’s best goalscorer.
Arsenal Ladies won the Continental Cup for the fourth time in their history. They beat a strong Notts County team 3:0 in the final.

Malin Diaz signed a 2-year contract extension with Eskilstuna United.

The 21-year old Swedish international joined the team in the summer of 2014 and quickly became a constant part of the starting eleven. The midfielder who was also in the squad for Sweden’s Women’s World Cup in Canada 2015, had some words to share after the signing:

“I’m very happy to be part of Eskilstuna’s team. I hope we can continue to build next season from where we left off this year.”

We wish the young talent good luck and a lot of success with Eskilstuna United and Sweden National Team.
