In total, Majri played 254 matches and scored 78 goals for this year UWCL winners.
“I have a lot of emotion. I never imagined coming here to sign a contract with my daughter. Continuing the adventure with my favorite club is a source of pride and in these circumstances even more so. I can’t wait to get back on the pitch and play matches before my daughter’s eyes. I’m overwhelmed, it’s like a dream. I must thank the president because it is a real proof of confidence,” said Majri.
The 20-year-old Alyssia Paljevic also renewed her stay in the club. The young French goalkeeper, who has also been with the club her whole career, is yet to make an appearance for the senior team.
