Any idea who might replace her?
No idea for the moment, I can only quote what Dr Weizman president of Metz declared:
"Our aim is to find a player capable of replacing Xenia Smits in our central defence. We are putting our networks at work but we do not want to hurry. It remains one and a half month before the champions league starts and we do not take a player just for the number. We are looking for a player bringing on a real gain, that will not necessarily play as a back player but with a defensive profile able to strengthten the team."
