Chloe Logarzo has departed Western United and will return to parent club Kansas City Current after the conclusion of her loan deal in the Liberty A-League Women.
Logarzo became a pivotal leader in the Western United camp and has played a major role in the side’s success so far this season.
As well as her contributions on the field, Logarzo has been invaluable in helping to set the standards and culture in the dressing room as one of the inaugural vice-captains, becoming instrumental in helping Western United’s inaugural side create its identity.
The Matildas star arrived in the West just before the beginning of the season and made her debut in Round 1, making an impressive substitute cameo against Melbourne Victory.
Logarzo really made her presence felt in the competition either side of Christmas, though, essentially winning two games for Western United off her own boot.
United met Melbourne City in a blockbuster clash on 17 December and the score was 1-1 at half-time when Logarzo entered the fray off the bench.
It took less than 20 minutes for the superstar to produce the game’s crowning moment, a stunning long-range strike that put United back in front on the day.
While that goal ultimately would have been enough for the win, Logarzo made sure of it with a penalty in the dying seconds to cap off a brace and a match-winning display.
Logarzo was at it once again just two weeks later, but this time she entered on the hour mark with United down 2-1 to Perth Glory.
The No.6 popped up in the box within eight minutes to haul United level before busting out a memorable Ace Ventura-inspired goal celebration. A late own goal would seal another thrilling victory for Mark Torcaso’s side on New Year’s Day.
Unfortunately, Logarzo would only go on to make one further appearance for United after suffering from a foot injury but remained a key voice and presence off the pitch.
Logarzo is continuing to work her way to full fitness and will be raring to go once she returns to Kansas with a five-month lead-up to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on home soil in Australia.
Everyone at Western United thanks Logarzo for her time at the Club this season and looks forward to her returning to fitness and hopefully lining up for the Green and Gold at the historic World Cup later this year.
