Brave Gladiators captain Zenatha Coleman continues to tread where other local players haven't as she inked a one-year deal with top-flight Spanish club Sevilla for the 2020/21 season.
There is no indication as to the amount she will be earning but the Keetmanshoop-born player used her Twitter account to share the news and promised to leave great memories behind at the club.
Continue flying high
Namibian fans such as Sidney Martin wished the industrious player well with her new venture. 'Your determination and hard work is paying off,' said Martin on Facebook.
Another fan, Likius David, said Coleman should continue to receive great support from the Namibian football fraternity and that more women should be groomed to join professional clubs abroad.
'There is room for more women to come through the structures. They should just get the motivation and investment to push them forward,' added David.
Coleman becomes the latest addition to Cristian Toro's team ahead of the start of the season in September after ending her journey with rivals Valencia in May, upon which she returned to Namibia as the rest of the world battles the Covid-19 pandemic.
Asked what her next move was, the player remained tight-lipped and focused on training.
Coleman has had a successful stint so far in her career.
In 2018, she started with Zaragoza after arriving in Spain from Lithuanian side Gintra Universitetas, where she scored 110 goals in 31 games and had her first taste of the Women's Champions League.
The 26-year-old, who joined Valencia from then Spanish top-flight side Zaragoza in 2018, scored 11 goals in 42 appearances for Jose Bargues' team during her two-year stint at the club.
During her first season, she scored seven goals in 24 matches, including being nominated for the Player of the Week award twice and in her second outing, netted four times in 21 appearances.
The striker is Namibia women's national team captain and featured at several Cosafa Women's Cups and also starred at the 2014 Africa Women's Cup of Nations staged in her country.
