Nigerian defender, Osinachi Ohale has joined Serie A Women’s League team AS Roma on a one-year deal for an undisclosed fee, following her departure from Spanish side Real Madrid.
Upon her announcement, the 28-year-old becomes the latest Nigerian to join an Italian outfit and also the club’s third signing this summer after Spain’s Paloma Lazaro and Italy’s Rachele Baldi.
“Welcome to the team, Osinachi Ohale!” the club said on its official Twitter handle. “The Nigerian defender becomes our latest addition this summer!”
Reacting to her historic move, Ohale told the club website: “I chose Roma because of so many things; so many amazing things about the club, about this city and this country that interested me.
“I felt like it would be a great thing for me, to explore and to experience new things and a new challenge.”
Having joined the Giallorosse, Ohale will hope to make a fine debut in Italy when Roma open their league campaign in September.
