"She's a very talented and strong soccer player who will fit in wonderfully with our players both on and off the field. She will definitely compliment the style of game we want to play. I had a great opportunity to observe and talk with her during her recent visit and it confirmed what we always thought of her.”

When asked about what she is hoping to achieve by joining the Lakers, Kovacs was quick to identify team goals as a main focus.
“I hope to help the team achieve the goals we set for ourselves in the coming season. I want to learn from the other team members and coaching staff, to improve myself as a player and person.”
