Norwegian Ingrid Engen signs for Barça
23-year-old midfielder arrives from Wolfsburg on a two-year contract
Ingrid Syrstad Engen is the first new signing to the Barça women’s team for 2021/22. The Norwegian midfielder arrives from Wolfsburg and has signed a contract until 30 June 2023 at an event in the Estadi Johan Cruyff attended by director Xavier Puig and the manager of women’s football, Markel Zubizarreta.
The powerful 23-year-old tends to play in the middle and is renowned for her skill, positioning and penetration, which should fit nicely with Barça’s typical association game. The Norwegian international has faced Barça twice in the past, in the Champions League semi-finals in 2019/20 with Wolfsburg, and in the quarter finals of 2018/19 with LSK Kvinner.
"It means a lot to me. I am proud to be here. It is a dream come true."
"They are the best team in the world because of how they play and what they have won. I can’t wait to join the group!"
"I love to have the ball so I think I’ll sit into the Barça style very well."
