Catarina Macario : « Hâte de vivre cette nouvelle aventure à l'OL »
The new American recruit, Catarina Macario, gave her first reactions on signing for OL. The full interview can be found on OLPlay.

Catarina, what does OL represent to you?

OL represents victory, success, the best players in women's football. It also represents equality between men and women in football, and a very high level training environment. I can't wait to be a part of the club!


Why did you choose to join OL?

The club will be able to help me progress as a player but also as a person. A club at this level will force me to work hard every day to stay competitive and win titles.


Other American players like Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe have played for OL, is there any sense of continuity with your arrival?

I know a lot of American players and other players from around the world have played for OL. There is a strong history here with a lot of titles and I can't wait to be part of that success.


Do you already know a little about France and the city of Lyon?

I have never been to Lyon or France. I am excited to discover this city with my new teammates. I'm just excited to have this new adventure here. I remember seeing Groupama Stadium during the World Cup. It's a beautiful stadium and I can't wait to play there.
