“I had offers from Spain but it was very rare to see me with another shirt”
BARCELONA, 6 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Spanish player Vicky Losada has assured that she has chosen Manchester City, where she will play for the next two seasons after leaving Barça raising the treble as captain, to continue aspiring to everything and because with her Blaugrana playing profile she fits into an English league where ” “the creative and intelligent play profile is scarce.”
Speaking to Europa Press, Losada explained that City coach Gareth Taylor was the one who requested his signing due to his playing profile. “Gareth seeks a profile of intelligence, of understanding the game, and with the years that I have lived I can contribute my leadership and competitiveness and the profile of Barça in the English league is scarce,” he said.
This point, added to the fact that City aspires to become the dominator of the English league and aspires to win the ‘Champions’, made Losada opt for the ‘citizen’ offer and discard some first offers that came from the Spanish league .
“I want to win everything again. It is the competitive and ambitious mentality that I have, and I think that City has a team to spare to win the ‘Champions’. Sometimes that is not enough, I have lived it with Barça and we have to go step by step. Hopefully next year there will be a good season, “he predicted.
“The City has attracted me to be able to continue competing at the highest level, its players, the English league, which for me is the best at an institutional and level and media level, because they show that they want to take women’s football to the next level”, deepened.
But he stressed that, first, offers from Primera Iberdrola arrived at the table. “I had offers from Spain, they were the first, but it was very rare for me to see myself with another shirt in Spain. And, furthermore, City is a great club and I wanted to continue competing with great players, continue to learn and push myself to the limit, and compete for another ‘Champions’, “he argued.
“I really wanted to go back to the English league, I remember my best years of my career there. City is one of the pioneers of the League and Pep Guardiola is training there (men’s team) and it is being seen. It is the club and the The team that best suits my style and my goals. I am very happy with the confidence they have given me, “said Terrassa, who had previously played for Arsenal.
On a personal level, like last year there was a Barça-City duel in the ‘Champions’, she doesn’t want to think now what it would be like for her to face Barça as a rival. “I have not thought about what a game against Barça would be like because everything is very recent. I have not even had the opportunity to get to Manchester. I am not going to put myself in that situation ‘for free’, but it is clear that it will be something very rare and difficult, “he said.
“I leave Barça not only because of not playing, because in football there are many more things. In fact I played half the games, not counting injuries. But day by day, feeling more important or valued in a thousand things that there are As captain she helped a lot and it was time to give way to other people, “he pointed out in this regard.
