Kirsten Schlewitz

Editor and League Manager, European Soccer

Kirsten Schlewitz specializes in Italian football, but can be found writing about almost any aspect of European football that takes her fancy. She's especially devoted to Premier League side Aston Villa and Serie A side Napoli, loves the Bundesliga in general, and tries to catch as many Montenegrin second-division games as possible. When not writing about football, Kirsten can be found wandering Balklandia, sipping coffee, or ranting on Twitter. Often in multiple languages.
