Duggan: 'This match means a lot to me'

The English striker to face her previous Club, Manchester City, for the first time since becoming a blaugrana

Toni Duggan will undoubtedly be one of the stars in the match between Manchester City and Barça at 8.30pm CEST on Sunday. The striker played for the English club from 2013 to 2017 before moving to Barcelona and she recognised the emotions she will be experiencing on the day.

Read on for Duggan’s best quotes:

“I enjoyed my time there during a very successful period for the Club but I am here now, with a different team and I am looking forward to the challenge. Both sides play with a similar style and it will be a good game.”

“This game means a lot to me. It is special to go home to play, the most important thing for me is that my family will watch me play again. Before it was easier for them and my friends, it will be a nice moment and an important one for the team.”

“We know that English sides are physical and it will be a tough game. But we are in a good place, we demonstrated how far we can go in the Champions League last season. Matches against Chelsea, Manchester City and Montpellier can only be beneficial for the club.”

“The most important thing is to win the league and I want to help the team in any way I can to make sure we win.”

“We have lots of internationals, players with plenty of experience. The team is acclimatising well and the US tour was good for us to get to know each other better.”

“I feel a lot more confident in my second season. The first year away is always complicated as you are learning a new language, culture, style of play… I feel more comfortable and am ready for the new season.”
