Juventus defender, Linda Sembrant has signed a new deal to remain with the Serie A reigning champions until 2022

The 33-year-old initially joined Juventus in the summer of 2019, on a one-year deal from the French Division 1 side Montpellier HSC.

Since joining the Bianconere, she is closing in on 50 appearances in all competitions with six goals scored in the process. She is a constant pillar in the starting eleven of the team and has already won two successive Italian Super Cups with the team along with a Serie A League Champion title.

Strong physically, with an innate ability to read all situations in advance, and a goal-scoring capacity, she has been one of the best centre-backs in Serie A. Her ability to give the team the style of play they need in the defence has led the two parties to a second contract extension.

As an essential part of the Sweden Women’s National team, Linda has scored 15 goals in 126 appearances. Her two most recent goals were scored last month in a friendly victory against Austria (6-1) and earlier December in the 6-0 win against Slovakia in UEFA Women’s Euro qualifying.

LTA Agency congratulate Linda and wish her good luck in the current and future challenges with Juventus.
