Icelandic Gunnarsdottir leaves Olympique Lyonnais for Juventus

Icelandic midfielder Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir left Olympique Lyonnais on Friday to join Juventus Turin, champions of Italy. The 31-year-old player with 136 caps has signed a two-year contract and will join her new teammates after the Euros, which will be played in England from July 6 to 31.

Pregnant, she missed a large part of last season. Olympique Lyonnais, however, won its eighth Champions League, while giving birth to its first child, last May. Serie A will become a professional league from next season.
