Alex Morgan: Why I’m Going to Play in Lyon

As you may have heard by now, I’ve decided to head to France and join the Olympique Lyonnais football club for the conclusion of their 2016–17 season.

This was not an easy decision for me. But after a few weeks of deliberation, I finally made this decision during a belated honeymoon that I recently took with my husband, Servando, in Europe.

I will be leaving Servando and my family (and our dog, Blue) behind, and I know from years of experience that phone calls and FaceTime are not a fun way to stay connected. I also know that our U.S. Women’s National Team is in a critical place at the moment, as we fight for what’s fair in a new CBA, and that it will be more difficult for me to help lead from abroad. I know, too, that The Pride and our incredible fans will be opening a state-of-the-art new stadium without me, and that I will miss the early part of the season. All of those things made it very difficult for me to make this decision.

So why Lyon … and why now?
