Glasgow City bring in Monterrey legend Desirée Monsiváis

Glasgow City's new signing, Desirée Monsiváis

Glasgow City have signed former Mexican international striker Desirée Monsiváis from Liga MX Femenil side Monterrey.

Monsiváis scored 119 goals in 166 games for Monterrey and was the first player in league history to hit 100 goals in Liga MX Femenil when she netted her century last year.

She was also part of the Monterrey side that won the Liga MX Femenil League titles in 2019 and 2021.

Desirée Monsiváis said on joining: “I feel very motivated and happy to take on this amazing opportunity. It’s definitely a new challenge with high expectations but I feel ready to live up to it all knowing the club has such great confidence in me and has welcomed me with such ease. I’m ready to work alongside my teammates to keep adding silverware to this rich club.”

Eileen Gleeson commented: “I’m delighted that we have succeeded in signing Desirée Monsiváis to Glasgow City FC. Desirée was a key target for us, so it is with great pleasure that we welcome her to the club.

“She is a known goal scorer who I have no doubt will quickly become a Glasgow City fan favourite. She is a driven, ambitious player who will make the team step up a level. Signing Desiree, alongside the additional new summer signings which add to the existing quality within the squad signals Glasgow City’s intent to challenge for all silverware this season.”
