On sealing their switch to Sweden, she becomes the second South African to play for the Swedish top-flight outfit after Stephanie Malherbe starred for the team last season.

On completing her move, Molthalo said: “I am very happy and expectant to come to Stockholm and play for Djurgarden.”

“I look forward to new experiences and to experiencing a new atmosphere, says Linda via a crisp connection from South Africa and she has a good track record at Damallsvenskan.

“I know it’s a good league with the sharp competition. I also know that Djurgården has historically been a good team even though it was really tough last season.”

“I debuted in South Africa’s A-team when I was 17, so I have had quite a few international matches by this time,” she continued.

“Of course, I hope there will be more in the future. If you look at the characteristics, it is a goal-oriented, ball-savvy and offensive player who joins the team.

“I work hard on the pitch, want to be involved in the game and am versatile when it comes to positions.

“Then, after all, I’m not the biggest physical player on the pitch, but I always invest 100 percent in close quarters and am strong mentally.

“I hope I can join in and contribute to getting us higher up in the table this year. Hopefully, we can join the upper tier, says Linda, who joins the team when all the papers are in order.

“I need to get my visa ready but as soon as it’s done I go to Sweden. I’m looking forward to it.
