VANCOUVER, B.C. – Seattle Reign FC’s Adriana Leon has had quite the busy year in the NWSL. After a promising 2017 campaign with the Boston Breakers, Leon looked to return to Boston this season. Unfortunately the Breakers folded, and Leon was picked up in a dispersal draft by Sky Blue FC on January 30, 2018.
As first reported by The Equalizer, player conditions on and off the pitch with Sky Blue were completely below professional standards. Leon was not given enough of an opportunity to showcase her abilities with Sky Blue FC. Two appearances totaling 33 minutes is not enough for any footballer to build chemistry, and mesh with a new team.
The 25 year-old Leon shed some light on why she believes her move from the Breakers to Sky Blue FC didn’t work out.
“I think the entire thing that worked out with Boston Breakers really put players in a tough spot. Everyone was in a tough spot. European windows were closed. We didn’t have time to come up with a kind of back-up plan. We had to hope for the best. When I got to Sky Blue, it wasn’t the right environment for me.
