Brazilian superstar Marta returns to Swedish league after three seasons in WPS

24 Feb, 2012

Five-time FIFA player of the year Marta will return to the Swedish league after three seasons in the WPS. Swedish club Tyreso presented the Brazilian star Wednesday as its latest player at a news conference in Stockholm.

Marta played three seasons in the Women's Professional Soccer league in the United States, winning two WPS championships. The league suspended the 2012 season amid a legal dispute with an ousted owner, with hopes of restarting next year.

Marta spent five seasons with Umea of the Swedish League from 2004 to 2008.

"The goal is to win the Swedish league this year and play Champions League next season," Marta said. "I enjoy being in Sweden. It is my second home, and I have very good memories from here."
