First choice goalkeeper joins former top scorer on Liverpool exit list

Liverpool have announced that first choice goalkeeper Anke Preuss is leaving the club according to reports on The Reds’ official club website.

The 28-year-old German stopper moved to Prenton Park from former FA Women’s Super League 1 club Sunderland in summer 2018 and she made the first choice goalkeeping jersey her own during her time on Merseyside.

With the 2019/2020 Barclays FA Women’s Super League campaign having drawn to a premature close, Liverpool have announced that Preuss is leaving the club. The player joins the club’s former top scorer Courtney Sweetman-Kirk through the Prenton Park exit door.

In her two seasons as a Liverpool player, goalkeeper Preuss has made 24 appearances for The Reds in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League in which she has kept three clean sheets. The former UEFA Women’s Champions League winner has been one of Liverpool’s most consistent performers.

Preuss spent the early days of her senior career playing in her homeland with FCR 2001 Duisburg, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and 1. FFC Frankfurt before the player moved to Italy where she spent almost eight months with AGSM Verona Calcio.

A two-season spell in the English top flight with Sunderland followed before Preuss made the switch to latest club Liverpool ahead of the 2018/2019 campaign.

Prior to Preuss’ confirmed departure, Liverpool had three goalkeepers on their books, Fran Kitching and Rylee Foster being the others.
