After five duels, Alex Morgan Tottenham leaves Hotspur and returns to the U.S.

Three months ago American football star Alex Morgan signed another contract with the English Tottenham Hotspur, but after five matches the 31-year-old American superstar is already leaving London.

Morgan returns to Orlando Pride, the club she played for between 2017 and 2020. The top shooter gave birth to a daughter in May and had a contract with the Spurs until the end of the season. In the five games, she scored two goals.

'Eternally grateful'

"I am eternally grateful to the club, my teammates and Spurs fans for taking such good care of me and my family," says Morgan on the Spurs website. "I've been given the opportunity to return to the sport I love so much. Thank you to everyone who has made this chapter of my football career so special."
