Alex Morgan, Tottenham's brightest star

Tottenham is one of the teams that has most dominated football news in recent days due to upon the return of Gareth Bale to their ranks They have also incorporated the Spanish Sergio Reguilón. However, a week before the Spurs They had announced a signing that is sweeping social networks: that of the American attacker Alex Morgan (31 years). With the publication of her first interview as a player for the London team, the international with the United States has proven to be Tottenham's brightest star.

“Being a part of this organization is quite incredible, you know, the rich history and the fact that the women's team has continued year after year … I am very happy to take the next step in my career, “said Alex Morgan in this video published by the Tottenham women's account on Twitter and that has exceeded the 7,000 social interactions.

To give another example, yesterday, the post in which the American posed with the three t-shirts of the Spurs for this season it touched 15,000 interactions, while the link to buy Bale's shirt in the official store was almost 6,000. Of course, in the official announcement of the return of the Welshman, all records were broken (266,000 interactions, between retweets and I like it).

And it is that nobody can deny that Alex Morgan is a world reference. Few athletes are capable of generating so much expectation worldwide on their return to competition, since it must be remembered that the United States soccer player has been for more than a year without playing, since August 2019: she was injured, later announced that she would be a mother and now returns to green. A little less time Serena Williams was out for her motherhood and, of course, later she returned to the world elite of tennis.

Why did you choose Tottenham

“It all happened very quickly. I spent time in Orlando with my team in the NWSL and realized that I needed consistent games and constant training throughout the season, at least for the rest of the year. I started looking at the English League and Tottenham is obviously a great club that was on my radar. In less than 48 hours, I think, we were able to sign. Within 48 hours I am sure I land here, so it was extremely fast, “explains Morgan, who of course also took his family into account when making the decision:” Obviously, I had to take into account my family, my daughter, who is four months old, and my husband who plays soccer in the United States. It also had to see how I can come back after not playing for a good amount of time due to injury, also pregnancy and the pandemic, so there are many things that played a role. “

It should be remembered that the career of the attacker of the United States team is full of titles and individual awards: two World Cups, the NWSL, the triplet with Olympique de Lyon (League, Cup and Champions). However, now he comes to a team that last season was seventh in the FA Women's Super League and, consequently, does not play in European competition, so he will have to get used to England and being in a non-leading team (they have not won yet a game in the first two league matches).

What is certain is that she will not be alone, since several of her compatriots and teammates from the United States have also landed in the Women's Premier: Christen Press and Tobin Heath (Manchester United), Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis (Manchester City). “I've heard so much good things about the WSL and some of my teammates from the national team have come and signed with other clubs in the FA WSL. I wanted to challenge myself and play in a different league than what I'm used to, so this was the perfect opportunity to come here, “confirms Morgan in his interview. It is clear that the English fans are going to have a good time this year …
