Eniola Aluko is trying to implement a sea change in US women’s soccer. Those are not her words. Not exactly. But hearing her set out her ambitions as sporting director of new NWSL club Angel City, there can be no doubt: she is determined to be different.
And if it is change that Aluko wants, she certainly appears to be starting in the right place.
Angel City will play their first NWSL season in 2022, bringing women’s soccer back to Los Angeles 12 years after Tinseltown’s last team, the Los Angeles Sol, ceased to operate. And they already stand out, thanks to an ownership group that includes Hollywood A-listers, music stars and sports icons.
