Christen Press didn’t like the way she was traded to Houston, and has officially turned the page on it.

Press will head to Sweden for a stint with Goteborg, saying the move is for the betterment of her career, putting on ice a saga that saw her refute the team-explained timeline for her trade from Chicago to Houston en route to refusing the move altogether.

Press, 29, played with Goteborg in 2012. She is two caps from 100 in her career with the USWNT, for whom she’s scored 44 goals. She has scored 35 goals in 60 NWSL games after returning from Tyreso following a tremendous 43-goal season in 2013.

Perhaps while there she can have a dinner with Mix Diskerud and share bitter thoughts about how soccer transfers work on our shores, for better or worse.
