What They're Saying: Takumi Jeannin

“After years of not making changes, it’s hard to believe it will happen in a couple weeks. I think they were delusional that if they called with the governor of New Jersey, it would change everything.”

-- Takumi Jeannin, the agent for former University of North Carolina star Julia Ashley, after she spurned Sky Blue FC in her home state of New Jersey to sign with Linkopings FC in Sweden. Sky Blue FC took Ashley with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NWSL College Draft, but she had concerns about working conditions raised in media reports last season. She said New Jersey governor Phil Murphy, the team's owner, tried unsuccessfully to convince her to sign and help turn around the team. (Star-Ledger)
