Asisat Oshoala departs Barcelona, pens heartfelt message

Six time Africa Women’s Footballer of the Year, Asisat Oshoala, has officially announced her departure from Barcelona Femeni to join Bay FC in the United States, platinumnewsng.com is reporting.

Oshoala in a social media post expressed her heartfelt farewell to the Spanish club, where she played for over the past five years since her arrival in 2019.

“As I bid farewell to this incredible team and the city that has been my home for the past 5 years, I am filled with mixed emotions. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to wear the Barcelona jersey and represent this prestigious club.

“Since joining the team in 2019, I have had the opportunity to be a part of some of the most memorable moments in the club’s history. Together, we have lifted several trophies and these achievements are a testament to hard work, dedication and I feel privileged to have been a part of this team.

“But beyond the trophies and accolades, what I will cherish most are the relationships I have built with some of my teammates, coaches, staff and the amazing fans. You have become my family and I will forever be grateful for the love and support you have shown me.

“Thank you for everything. You have given me more than I could have ever imagined and I will always be a proud representative of this incredible club.”

Oshoala’s move to Bay FC, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is marked by a contract that runs through 2026, with an option for an additional year. The transition is a new challenge for the 29-year-old striker, who has previously played for Robo Queens in Nigeria, Dalian Quanjian in China and in the English Women’s Super League with Liverpool and Arsenal.

Throughout her illustrious career at Barcelona, Oshoala has amassed an impressive collection of titles, including four Liga F championships, two UEFA Women’s Champions League victories, and three Copas de la Reina.

She scored 107 goals in 149 appearances for Barcelona, making her the club’s fourth-highest goalscorer in history, and has been nominated for the Ballon d’Or Féminin twice.
