so There it sits, with a broad Grin on his face, the thumb is stretched to the top. Right behind it: The Logo of FC Barcelona. Ana Maria Crnogorcevic is smiling in the camera as in front of her many great female Football player and footballer deeds. For Example, Lieke Martens, World Footballer Of 2017. Or Diego Armando Maradona. Or Johan Cruyff. Or Ronaldinho. Since Wednesday, the record goalscorer for the Swiss national team with all these sizes of sport something in common: the Barça Shirt.
A spectacular change for many, except Crnogorcevic yourself: "For me, the Transfer was not so surprising." The Champions League finalists from the previous year, had already endeavoured to Crnogorcevic, the first contact is about a year. Even then, in the January switch, as the 29-Year-old should have been, however, in the case of Portland under contract. Then it tried the Catalans again in the summer, again unsuccessfully. But as Crnogorcevics commitment in the United States ended this October, finally, was the time. And the chemistry with the sports Director of Markel Zubizarreta, the son of the legendary Barça goalkeeper Andoni, agreed immediately. Usual sober, she says: "Very nice, that has now folded."
"The training facility is huge, I have not yet seen everything."
Ana Maria Crnogorcevic
the 29-year-old Bernese countries flew in on Tuesday evening in the Catalan metropolis, and by delivery on Wednesday the medical Check, which included a Marathon of eight studies. Anyway, everything is bigger at Barça, as it knows Crnogorcevic: "The training facility is huge, I have not yet seen everything." In the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, named after the Swiss club's founder, Hans Gamper, the training of the men's team led by Superstar Lionel Messi. It is very likely that since the paths sometimes cross.
If you can talk with the Argentines? "Muy bien" is Spanish, says Crnogorcevic and laughs: "It is one of the languages that I barely speak." The Association represents, however, a language teacher available. Two to three lessons of one and a half hours you will go per week in the classroom. So even less time to miss your big Hobby, which she discovered in the United States, remains: the pottery. Anyway, you want to settle in first, correctly: "Then there might be a possibility – or I need to find something else." It is very likely she has in Barcelona, not enough time, because although the contract officially runs until the end of the season, is likely to remain the Champions-League winner of the 2015 longer – both sides have an Option for an extension until the summer of 2021.

For men, the Highest hits, in the case of women with potential
at Least Crnogorcevic as soon as possible does not seem to want to back away. To much she raves about the new dimensions at Barça. Not so much from a sporting point of view, because after all, they once played at FFC Frankfurt, at the time, one of the best Teams in Europe. You are far at Barça a little, even if the Catalan achieved in the previous year, the Champions League Final. However, in the next few years, the residue to the top of the 1:4 defeat against Lyon has pointed out, is to be closed. Also in terms of spectators, the women's section of FC Barcelona is: To the Estadi Johan Cruyff 6000 people, sold out even this small stadium, but only rarely.
But it is the charisma of the club that is above and beyond what she has experienced in her career. Hamburger SV was already a large number, from 2009 to 2011, her first club abroad, Barcelona is once again much bigger. "In the men's football club is of course the Highest," she says, explaining that she now gets a lot more messages from friends and Acquaintances than their previous Switch.
Because the transfer window is closed, is allowed to play the Thunerin in January for Barça, that is why she now has a few free days before you trained colleagues on Tuesday for the first time with their new team. At least then it will be for real: she's wearing the same shirt as once Maradona, Cruyff and Ronaldinho.
