Glasgow City are delighted to have secured American born striker Krystyna Freda on loan from Cypriot Champions Apollon Ladies.
The 26 year old prolific striker has been the top goalscorer in Cyprus for the last three seasons scoring an unbelievable 245 goals in the process. Freda is also no stranger to finding the back of the net in the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL), scoring 13 times in the tournament so far over the past two seasons. This includes netting against City back in late 2018 when she scored for Somatio Barcelona at Petershill Park in the last 32 of the competition.
Last month the forward was also named to the NCAA Division 1 Big South Conference Team of the Decade after excelling during her time at Winthrop University.
Without doubt the striker adds excellent firepower as Scott Booth’s side prepare to face Wolfsburg in the Champions League Quarter Final.
“Krystyna is a stand out striker. We're all looking forward to having her in our squad for the loan period. She is a player we've competed against previously so we all know how dangerous she can be. It's great news that this time she'll be playing in Glasgow City's colours.”
On joining City, Freda commented:
“I am so excited to be joining Glasgow City to help them in the UWCL finals tournament. Glasgow is a strong, amazing team that has proven that they are one of the best teams in Europe and I feel honoured to be a part of this next challenge with them.”
Freda becomes the second signing for City in the last few days with full back Zaneta Wyne joining from Norwegian side Klepp.
