“She [Roman Haug] will be playing with a mask. She’s been back in full training this week. We’re really looking forward to having her in the squad.”

Now though, the club’s record signing is set to make a triumphant debut in front of a large crowd at the men’s traditional home stadium and this could be the perfect stage for the 24-year-old to mark her maiden appearance – hopefully with a goal and a victory!
