“It feels amazing to be here. I’m still young, I need to learn a lot, and I think this is the perfect environment for me to grow. I like the league in England and we have a very good manager in Willie Kirk. I’ve spoken to him, and the way he sees my game is the way I see myself. I know the club wants to play in the Champions League. That’s one of my goals, too, and I hope I can help the team reach that,” said Bennison for the club’s website.
Hanna Bennison is the third Swedish newcomer in Everton, joining her national teammates Anna Anvegård and Nathalie Björn.
