Former Kentucky Youth Soccer player Libby Stout signed a contract with Liverpool this month, leaving BV Cloppenburg in Germany to become the team’s newest goalkeeper.
The talented international player has ample experience running with the big dogs, having played in France with Femin Yzeure Allier Auvergne against teams such as Olympique Lyon and Paris St Germain. She has also represented the U.S. U23 team.
KYSA had a chat with Stout about playing internationally and her decision to sign with Liverpool.:
KYSA: What are you most excited about with this step in your career?
Stout: I am most excited to be playing with the reigning champions of the WSL and to have the opportunity to play in the Champions League for the first time. I have very much enjoyed living and playing in France and Germany, but I am very excited to be living in an English speaking country. This way I can really contribute as a leader and communicator from day one.
KYSA: What does it feel like to sign a pro contract?
Stout: Signing my first professional contract in France was truly one of the best moments I have had in my life. It is an amazing feeling to realize a dream and to have all my hard work and perseverance payoff.
