It’s Official: Welcome Kaci!

30 Jul

Our third official signing for CD Tacon / Real Madrid is French midfielder/defender Kaci Aurelie! She’s making the big trip across Madrid, having won back-to-back Liga Feminina Iberdrola Championship titles with Atlético Madrid the past two seasons.

Prior to her Atletico days, 29-year-old Kaci spent a combined eight seasons with Olympique Lyon tallying up eight Division 1 Féminine championships, four Coupe de France Féminine trophies, and four UEFA Women’s Champions League medals. Whew – that’s quite a haul. Here’s hoping she can do the same for us!
