Thanks to Sofia Jakobsson for laying the foundation
As Real Madrid fans rejoice at the extra time granted to a few key players, including top scorer Kosovare Asllani, we must also salute the players who will be leaving the club after a historic first season as ‘Real Madrid’. And no absence will be greater than that of her fellow Swedish international and original Galactica, Sofia Jakobsson.
Best Real Madrid player in this first 2019-2020 season as CD Tacon at the start of the transition, Jakobsson has established himself as a model of consistency. Las Blancas wasn’t even close to the finished product yet, but Jakobsson, Kosovare Asllani, third Galactic Chioma Ubogagu, and other key veterans, such as Jessica Martinez at the top, helped ensure Tacon would remain in the top flight for a while. takeover of Real Madrid. with even more new faces in 2020-2021.
Las Blancas changed for the better last season with astute signings like Marta Cardona, Maite Oroz, Misa, Olga Carmona and many more emerging as stars, and Asllani was the player of the season with a record breaking 16 goals.
Jakobsson has played a more low-key role on the wing compared to Asllani’s central exploits, but she was still very influential in Real Madrid’s historic success in qualifying for the Champions League in their first real season.
Sofia Jakobsson was a hard-working and world-class striker for Real Madrid
She scored eight goals and nine assists, equaling Asllani’s 17 total contributions. In fact, no player has had more assists than Jakobsson, only Flash Cardona beat her in the total contributions column with 20.
There is so much that stands out about Jakobsson, which is as true of a professional as you will find in football. Her pace and non-stop energy reserves made her a constant threat on the flanks, to the point that you knew you always had a chance to come back when she was on the pitch. And Jakobsson had the versatility to score or assist from either flank, giving a fluidity to Real Madrid’s attack that has benefited Cardona and Asllani in more ways than even the scoresheet shows. statistics.
Jakobsson hasn’t received the same praise as some of her teammates, but the Whites understand full well how central she has been to their success. And while we are sad to hear that she will be leaving for a new opportunity and that the club could have offered her a more competitive salary (she has made it clear that she does not want to leave the club), we are extremely grateful to the foundation she helped establish here with her quality and equally elegant demeanor.

It’s so important for a new club to have experienced leaders who can set the tone and create the necessary professional environment in the dressing room, especially a club with the prestige of Real Madrid. Jakobsson played a big part in all of this, and I can’t thank her enough for being one of the perfect people to create this rapid standard of high athletic success. So it’s no surprise that she is a sought-after player in the market, and I wish her the very best in her next steps.
Thanks for everything, Sofia Jakobsson.
And Hala Madrid!
