Swedish midfielder Julia Spetsmark to join Manchester City in January 2018
Manchester City has continued to strengthen their women’s squad signing Sweden’s Julia Spetsmark.
Spetsmark will join the English champions from KIF Örebro DFF in January 2018. An attacking midfielder, Spetsmark’s time at City will mark her first foray into a national league outside of Sweden, an opportunity she is relishing. A self-described attacking midfielder, Spetsmark is looking forward to making her mark at Manchester City and helping the team as they aim to retain their three domestic titles and challenge for the UEFA Women’s Champions League trophy.
Speaking about joining Manchester City in January 2018, Spetsmark said: “I’ve always wanted to play in England and I’m so happy to have the chance to do that now. Manchester City is a big club and the calibre of the training facilities and coaching staff at the City Football Academy are really going to improve my game and technique.
“I’m an offensive player and I can’t wait to join this club and help them score goals and win trophies”
Nick Cushing, Head Coach of Manchester City Women, added: “Julia is exactly the kind of player we’re looking for. This season our aim is to score more goals and entertain the fans every time we step on the pitch. Julia has the talent, the passion and the drive to help us do that.”
“Julias transfer to Manchester City may come as a surprise for some, but for those who have seen Julia play, knows that she has what it takes to make it at the absolute top level. This is a chance that she could not turn down, and even thou it has been severe interest from both domestic teams such as foreign ones, Manchester City has been the priority since entering discussions a few months back. It is of course very satisfactory that we as an agency, once again, continue to make our mark in a excellent way. Its exciting that we in just a few months has grown to become the obvious choice for ambitious female athletes.” said Elena Sadiku, Head of Women’s soccer at Neverland MGMT
