The Players’ Tribune: Alex Morgan



players-tribuneNew York, NY – In today’s digital world, we at Latino Sports understand and value the importance of collaborating with other online publications in order to showcase and create awareness of each other’s work and dedication within our respectable communities.

So when the fine folks from The Players’ Tribune contacted me, I knew this was a win-win situation for our online publications. With that said, on a weekly basis, I will post the link my favorite article of the week.

For this week, The Players’ Tribune article I selected was written by USWNT forward Alex Morgan. In her article, she explains why she is going to France to join Olympique Lyonnais. Here’s an excerpt of her article…

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.

On Lyon:
