Caroline Weir quotes – 

On joining Manchester City:

I think they’re leading the way in the women’s game in so many different ways. I think there are so many great players here, it’s a challenge to compete for trophies and try to improve, it’s what brought me here.
Everything is very professional, very well thought out and everyone’s very friendly as well, so I felt very welcome from minute one.

On the upcoming season:

[I’m looking forward to] the Champions League. The team did really well last year getting to the semi-finals. It’s a great competition, it’s something you want to be a part of as a player.

On playing with the current Manchester City squad

It’s really exciting. Every time I’ve played Man City, it’s always been a very tough game. They have so many good players, it’s great to be able to play with them now and I’m excited to go and challenge for the League and other trophies and hopefully we can be successful.
