After the selection of Red Flames, it is now a new club: Kassandra Missipo moves to FC Basel | Women’s football

Missibo’s last game dates back to May 8, 2021. In that match, the 24-year-old midfielder sustained a cruciate ligament injury. She did not extend her contract with Anderlecht, so Mississippi was without a club for a season.

Now that it has entered the final stage of its rehabilitation, Basel offers a solution. The midfielder is ready for her first foreign adventure. She began her career at the highest level in KAA Gent, where she played 5 seasons, in RSC Anderlecht she stayed for 1 season.

Missipo has been a fixture with the Red Flames for years, and after suffering a serious injury and a lack of a game in her legs, she is now surprisingly included in the big pre-selection for this summer’s European Championship. The intention is for her to join her new team after the European Championship.

FC Basel may not be the most visible club, but a visit to the top Swiss club immediately convinced Cassandra Mississippo. “The picture is correct,” Missibo tells Spurza.

“The venue and infrastructure are very professional. The training complex is massive. The men and women of FC Bazel are one big family. It feels so crazy.”

“Switzerland is a growing and difficult competition. Compared to Belgium, this is a step forward. The Swiss Football Association is trying to stimulate women’s football. In terms of infrastructure, every club is really at a high level. FC Basel really wants to move forward. This has charmed me.”

“I also get time here to calmly go back to my old self after a serious knee injury. Actually not the old one, but a new version of Kassie. I will be able to find myself here without pressure and perform what I want again.”

Mississippi is also in the Red Flame’s big squad at the European Championships, although she has yet to play after her cruciate ligament injury. “I’ve always worked hard behind the scenes and there was always a connection with the Red Flames crew. I struggled and sweated for this choice,” she says.

“I’m glad I got the chance to be with 33. I’ll keep working hard. I’ll enjoy training every day and then we’ll see.”
