Namibia star extends Sevilla Femenino contract


Namibia Women’s team (Brave Gladiators) captain Zenatha Coleman has extended her contract with Spanish Primera División giants Sevilla Femenino for another two years.

The 27-year-old striker, who joined Sevilla as a free agent from fellow Spanish side Valencia at the start of the 2020 season, showed unmatched versatility as she featured in almost all attacking positions for coach Cristian Toro’s side last campaign.

Coleman scored seven goals in 22 appearances for Sevilla. In those games, including the League and Copa, she scored two goals in the thriller against Atlético Madrid at the Jesús Navas Stadium, as well as a goal in the derby against Real Betis.

“I’m happy to be staying on with the club for another two more years, and I’m really excited to continue contributing to the team,” said Coleman.

“It is very important to strive for the same form and ambition that is expected from a club as big as Sevilla FC. I want to continue helping my teammates by contributing goals and hard work towards our success.”

Before moving to Valencia in 2018, the Namibian international also plied her trade for Zaragoza CFF, also in that country’s first division. Prior to moving to Spain, Coleman starred for Gintra Universitetas of Lithuania, where she scored a record 110 goals in 31 league outings.

Coleman was also a key figure for Gintra Universitetas during their 2016/2017 season of Union of European Football Associations Women’s Champions League campaign, which saw the Namibian rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s renowned talents.

She joined Gintra from local side Tura Magic Ladies FC in 2016.
