Soccer-Kerr signs two-year extension with Chelsea

0

Chelsea striker Sam Kerr has signed a new contract which will extend the Australian striker’s stay at the club until the end of the 2023-24 season, the women’s Super League champions have said. Kerr, who joined Chelsea midway through the 2019-20 season, established herself as a lethal scorer in the women’s top flight with 39 goals, escaping with the Golden Shoe last season with 21 goals in 22 games. .

The 28-year-old has played in Australia and the United States, but said winning trophies with the London club meant her decision to stay was “a given”. “I think the club gives me every chance to succeed as a player. I don’t see myself going anywhere else in the world or leaving Europe, having what I have at Chelsea,” Kerr said on the site Club web https: // www. chelseafc.com/en/news/2021/11/16/kerr-talks-through-extension-news.

“The time had come, honestly, I didn’t feel like I wanted to rush into anything, just like signing here the first time around, it just happened naturally.” Kerr was the first player to win the Golden Shoe on three different continents and she is also leading the race this season with six goals. But his main goal is to defend the title with Chelsea in second, one point behind Arsenal.

“I’m not going to lie, it’s good when I win them but that’s not my main goal at the start of the year,” she added. “It’s a great reward, but if I won Golden Boot after Golden Boot and no trophy, it wouldn’t be so rewarding for me.

“That’s why last season winning the Golden Shoe and winning the league was so rewarding because it ultimately meant something.”
