Kristin Bengtsson leaves Djurgården

36 year old Swedish veteran Kristin Bengtsson has decided to leave Djurgården. In a press release she says that she has done a lot of thinking, "which must come natural when you've been in the game as long as I have". She still wants to play "but you need to have the right conditions". Djurgården's sport director comments that Bengtsson has meant a lot to the club and hopes that she will continue to bring her competence to the game.
Kicki Bengtsson is one of Sweden's greatest players of all times. She has won the Diamond Ball, Sweden's Player of the Year award, two times and has 157 caps for Sweden (her first already 1991), more than any other Swedish player. She joined Djurgården from Göteborg and has played 4 seasons for the Stockholm side, winning one championship and two Swedish Cups.
The way I read this, it looks like Kicki Bengtsson wasn't satisfied with whatever it was that Djurgården offered her. I don't think she's the only one. Elin Ekblom voiced something similar when she left and Jane Törnqvist was obviously offered something by Göteborg that Djurgården couldn't match. There is a rumour that Djurgården is spending so much on their high profile players, that they can't afford to give competitive bids for experienced players like Bengtsson, Törnqvist and Ekblom.
Kicki Bengtsson says that she has closed the book on Djurgården and that there are new decisions to be made. I don't know if this means that we will see her in another club, but it doesn't sound unlikely.
