Norway's Rønning turns down Linköping
Norway and Kolbotn midfielder Trine Rønning has decided to turn down the contract offer she recieved from Linköping FC. "Linköping looked good", she says, "but this is a championship season and I don't want to change clubs and maybe put my national team place at risk." But she keeps the door open: "I've told Linköping that, if then still want to, we can get in touch a year from now."
For Linköping this means that they still haven't found the new big name they are looking for. Umeå's Elaine might be a possibility. Marta, whom Umeå might have to let go, is not a realistic option, says sports director Bengt Ekholm.
