Polish goalkeeper Katarzyna Kiedrzynek has wrapped up a move from Paris Saint-Germain to German outfit VfL Wolfsburg.
A safe pair of hands
The 29-year-old shot stopper has signed a three-year deal with the Wolves. She is currently set to join after the conclusion of the Parisian’s UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign as the Division 1 Féminine season was prematurely ended due to the coronavirus pandemic. They are due to play Women’s Super League side Arsenal in the quarter finals.
Kiedrzynek has been a regular for PSG since signing from Polish outfit Górnik Łęczna in 2013, making 119 appearances and appearing in two UEFA Women’s Champions League finals with the French outfit during her time with the club. She has also made 56 appearances for the Polish national team.
The Polish captain announced she would be ending her seven-year stint in the French capital earlier in the month via a social media announcement.
Polish outfit Onet has described her as “one of the leading goalkeepers in the world” during her time at Paris Saint-Germain.
She will be joining fellow Polish international Ewa Pajor at the German giants as the She-Wolves gun for the Frauen Bundesliga title when the league restarts on 29 May. While Kierdyznek will have to wait to make her Wolfsburg bow, her compatriot will be aiming to lift the She-Wolves’ fourth consecutive title.
Speaking to the Wolfsburg website, Kiedryznek told her new employers that she will be “very proud to wear the VfL Wolfsburg shirt. Although women’s football has made great progress and there are increasing numbers of attractive clubs with professional facilities, VfL Wolfsburg are still one of the best in the world”.
Sporting director Ralf Kellermann seemed pleased with the She-Wolves’ latest signing: “We are very happy to have signed Katarzyna, a goalkeeper who has gained international experience at a top-level with Paris Saint-Germain and the Poland national team.
