Manchester City ladies to come back stronger

 

 

Manchester City ladies will come back stronger than ever according to midfielder Isobel Christiansen after the Sky Blues were beaten to the title by Chelsea ladies.

Chelsea, who also won the FA Cup in August, claimed their first ever Women’s Super League title, with City finishing two points behind.

Not only did a run of eight wins in their final nine games keep the title race alive until the final day, but City have also qualified for their first Champions League campaign next season as a result.

Christiansen, who began her career with Everton and played for Birmingham before joining City in 2014, said; “We’ve proven that we are ready to compete in Europe next season.

“We’re only going to strengthen throughout the pre-season stage and we’ll be back fitter, better and stronger.”

Manager Nick Cushing was disappointed that his side were unable to win any silverware, but was pleased with his sides performances throughout the season.

“There’s a slight hint of disappointment that we haven’t won a trophy,” he said.

“But I said at the start of the year there’s four trophies on offer, Champions League qualification being one of them and we won that.

Captain and England international Steph Houghton will lead City into next season as the Sky Blues look to go one better next time around.
