Karen Bardsley extends contract with Manchester City Women

Manchester City’s England goalkeeper, Karen Bardsley, has agreed a new two-year deal with the club that will see her remain at City until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Speaking about her contract extension, Bardsley said:

“I’m really excited to put pen to paper and secure my future here at the club. I’m really proud to be part of this organisation, it means a lot to me to be here. The thing I really like about the club is they do stick to their word…to continually challenge perceptions and raise the bar in women’s football, which is something that’s very close to my heart. I’ve had a lot of opportunities, because I’ve been at this club. I’ve been able to develop myself as a footballer and as a well-rounded person off the back of those opportunities.”

Nick Cushing, Manchester City women’s team manager, commented:

“Karen is an incredible person and player. Throughout this season, she has produced many important saves for us in big games and we’re absolutely delighted she will remain at Manchester City. Her experience and passion for the game is what we need to continue to propel the club forward on and off the pitch.”
