Dresden (AP) – Dzsenifer Marozsan, the playmaker of the German national soccer team, has reported impressive experiences during her current loan to the US club OL Reign.
“Athletic, it’s really a different level. To be honest, it’s not the most beautiful football. My game has changed, ”said the 104-time national player on a video advert for the DFB about her first few months in the country of the world champions. The 2016 Olympic champion will return to her parent club Olympique Lyon, Reign’s partner club, at the end of the year. Both clubs have the same owner.
After three quarters of an international break, Marozsan is back in the squad of national coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg. The team will meet Bulgaria in the World Cup qualification on September 18 (4:05 p.m. / ARD) in Cottbus and Serbia three days later in Chemnitz (4:00 p.m. / ZDF). The former Frankfurt resident plays with US star Megan Rapinoe in Tacoma (Washington state).
“After every game you are totally at the limit,” said Marozsan, also looking at the long journeys in the US professional league, which was completely balanced. “You can say that I have learned a lot,” says the 29-year-old. “Often the ball just goes over midfield. That was an extreme change. The first games were very difficult. “
