Barcelona winger Caroline Graham Hansen is putting aside the disappointment of previous Women’s Champions League finals to focus on Chelsea in Sunday’s decider in Gothenburg, where both clubs will be aiming to win the top club prize for the first time.
Having missed 2015’s final through injury, Hansen was on the losing side in the 2018 decider when her VfL Wolfsburg side was beaten 4-1 in extra time by Olympique Lyonnais. The following year many of her current teammates took part as Barcelona was beaten 4-1 as Lyon clinched the fourth of five consecutive titles.
“It’s never fun to lose matches, and in that moment it’s extra disappointing when one doesn’t contribute to the extent that one can because of injury, the body doesn’t work – the disappointment is bigger, the frustration,” the 26-year-old told Reuters.
