Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer is to join Sweden's Djurgårdens IF FF in January from 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam as Norway's Bente Nordby returns to her home nation.
Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer, who went through the entire FIFA Women's World Cup without conceding, has agreed to join Djurgårdens IF FF in January 2008 from Frauen Bundesliga club 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam.
The 28-year-old made headlines in September with her feat in her first major tournament since succeeding Silke Rottenberg as Germany No1, and will take over from another legendary goalkeeper at Djurgården with Norway’s Bente Nordby set to return to her home nation. Angerer is familiar with her new club under their former guise of Djurgården/Älvsjö, as Potsdam defeated them in the 2004/05 UEFA Women's Cup final and the last four the following season.
Twice a German champion since joining Potsdam in 2001, Angerer has signed a two-year contract. She will link up with Germany team-mate Ariane Hingst, who left Turbine for Sweden in April. Djurgården finished the 2007 Damallsvenskan in second place behind UEFA Women's Cup quarter-finalists Umeå IK, while Potsdam currently lie third in Germany.
