Markel Zubizarreta affirms that “soon there will be news” about the future of Jenni or Martens
The Barça Women, champion of the triplet last season, does not stop reaping successes, as seen without going any further this past Monday in Paris with Alexia Putellas and Jenni Hermoso taking the first two positions of the Women’s Ballon d’Or and Sandra Paños, Irene Paredes and Lieke Martens also among the 20 finalists, in addition to counting by victories all the games played this year.
However, some of its most important players, such as her own Jenni or Martens, contract ends at the end of this season and they haven’t renewed yet. This Wednesday night, in the program ‘Tu Diràs’ of Rac1, the manager of Barça women’s football, Markel Zubizarreta, who recently signed until 2024, referred to the case of these two footballers and spoke about their future: “Our project is to give continuity and that players like Jenni or Martens continue, there will be news soon. The bet is equal to or greater than what is being made and we believe that we are in a position for them to stay and continue to improve “.
Zubizarreta also valued the Ballon d’Or won by Alexia Putellas: “It is a historical milestone. In addition, she is a player who has grown with us. It is an individual award but it was an objective that we had as a project and that we have already achieved.”
“Alexia’s Ballon d’Or is a historic milestone. In addition, she is a player who has grown up with us.”
If the Barça team manages to close these renovations, as everything indicates that this may be the case according to the words of Markel Zubizarreta, they would join those already announced this season, referring to other key pieces such as Alexia, which last September extended his contract for two more seasons, until 2024, or of Mariona caldentey, which this November also signed up 2024. Other pillars of the team that contract ends this season but have not yet renewed are Aitana Bonmatí, Marta Torrejón, Mapi León, Leila Ouahabi or Asisat Oshoala.
