Lundin’s football journey began in Kode IF (via Kungälvs FF), Mossens BK, Kungsbacka DFF, Kopparbergs / Göteborg and Kif Örebro. However, her goal was always to become an international football Pro and now it is finally fulfilled.
– It feels almost unreal that my dream is finally coming true. I have dreamt about this moment for as long as I can remember and it is also why I have always tired to constantly improve or develop not only as a player but human being as well. Now, my objective is to continue working hard and earn my ‘right’ in Fiorentina , says Lundin.
During the season, the striker has been on several foreign clubs radar but when Fiorentina reached out, she never hesitated.
– I wanted to join the Spanish or Italian league so this feels absolutely perfect for me. I have a really good impression of Fiorentina, she says.
Karin Lundin has plenty of qualities that Fiorentina was and is looking for in their attacking players. From her great positioning in the box, overall game understanding, and her demanding presence in the box. In addition, her wonderful personality will also add a lot to the team. She is also looking forward to learning Italian, as she knows how important understanding the language is, to be able to truly immerse herself in the culture.
– We are very excited about Karin’s transfer. She has been very consistent throughout the last seasons in the Swedish league and it will be absolutely fantastic to see her play ‘live’ in the Italian league. Fiorentina is one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the country. We are confident with Karin’s playing style, her natural born leadership qualities plus her abilities to create and score goals will help Fiorentina win not only games but titles in the upcoming years, says Lisa Ek, Client Manager at CMG.
– CMG has meant an incredible deal to me during the time I have been a client. Several of them have played at an elite level and have their own experiences. It feels safe to be able to brainstorm different ideas. Lisa Ek has played in Fiorentina herself and lives here in Italy, she has helped me a lot with everything since I came down. It feels absolutely superb, says Lundin.
