FourFourTwo interviewed soon-to-arrive Amandine Henry about her coming to the US to join the Portland Thorns, her thoughts about the atmosphere, etc.
How did your move to Portland become reality?
Portland, through the coach, contacted me through my agent. [Sonia Souid] told [me] that the opportunity to join Portland was concrete and they were very interested to have a player like Amandine. I was very excited because I’m at the end of my contract in June and it’s a great opportunity to join one of the best leagues in the world. I’ve always been very attracted by the United States and the level of the national team. I am very pleased and happy.
