After playing with Atlético Madrid for the last two seasons, centre-back Andrea Pereira is ambitious and eager to face her new challenge at FC Barcelona. "I have come to continue winning titles, especially the Champions League,” she said. Currently on the tour of the United States, she stated that one of the reasons why she decided to join Barça was because of how the players consistently praised the Club. "I know the Spanish players, and they have always spoken very well about the team, the dressing room and what they want to achieve.”

A player with good technical qualities, she will be a great addition to an already successful side. "I like to win the ball and am very aggressive," she explained. "I don’t have any male idols, but I look up to Marta Torrejón, Irene Paredes and Vanessa Gimbert.”

Away from the pitch, she enjoys an active life. "I like all sports, but going to the theatre is also an enjoyable hobby.”
