Damallsvenskan final round: Marta signs for 2008

With the only thing left to play for this last Damallsvenskan match day being if Linköping should manage to grab the fifth place from Sunnanå (after finishing third and winning the Swedish Cup last season it would still be a disappointment, but there are degrees even in hell), something else had to bring the excitement. Marta confessed in half time that she really would like to win the goalscorer league and had total control over the standing: she had scored two goals in the first half, but Lotta Schelin had scored one, keeping Schelin one goal ahead. Marta never managed to get any closer than that, but gave the viewers another surprise. When she came back after the recess, she sported a new match shirt (gold-coloured as the team had dressed up for the occasion), with the text "Marta - signed for 2008" surrounding the main sponsor logo (the main sponsor that put in the extra money that made the deal financially possible for Umeå). The new contract was signed already a couple of days ago, but the Umeå people never lets a good marketing stunt slip, so they had managed to keep it under wraps. Marta said after the match that the money hadn't been a deciding factor when renewing her contract. Staying with her friends in Umeå and playing in the league where she had the best conditions to continue to develop as a player settled it for her. At least for 2008, she seemed open to reconsider for 2009, without actually spelling it out. And when Umeå's manager Roland Arnqvist answered the question why only a one year contract, he said "we would still have been negotiating two months from now" if they had tried for a longer deal.
