Which player most inspired you and why? Zinédine Zidane is my biggest role model. I always wanted to play like he does.

Which coach most inspired you? Jürgen Klopp. He puts his heart and soul in it and has built up an exciting team. It is also amazing how he celebrates a goal.

What was the best advice they gave you? Just have fun playing football.

Best player you've played with? There are too many, it is impossible to name them all.

Toughest opponent? In the past Paris Saint-Germain were one of the toughest to play.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? The only fond memories are as a lone girl in a boy's team. The boys always protected me.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Work hard and long to reach her goals, train hard, have fun and never give up.
