Fans are also linking Jadon Sancho – who is reportedly looking to sign up with Manchester United – may think twice with Alica joining Dortmund.
She was also labelled as “World’s Sexiest Athlete” by Australian magazine ‘Busted Coverage,’ earlier this year where she said that she was surprised on receiving the award as she feels anyone can look good and she is a sportsperson and that is the priority.
On being featured on the prestigious magazine, she said: “I do not know why I got this title. Sport comes clearly first. There are thousands of girls on Instagram who look good and still do not have as many fans makes you interesting, and that’s just competitive sport for me.”
She would be vying to take part in the Tokyo Olympics next year. In 2017, she was a part of the silver-medal-winning 4×400 relay team at the European Athletics Under-20 Championships.
