​Christiansen targets more success for Man City women

Izzy Christiansen is targeting more silverware for Manchester City's women's team after they won their first Women's Super League title on Sunday.

They defeated last season's winners Chelsea to do it with a game to spare, beating them 2-0 in front of a new record home crowd of 4,096.

She said: "It's an incredible feeling. We're so happy, pleased and relived that we've managed to secure the title with a game to go and we're just delighted for everyone at the club.

"It means a lot because I'd like to think it will be the first of many. We are building a legacy here in terms of what we are doing in the women's game.

"I'd like to think it's going to inspire us to go on and win more. Chelsea were the holders last year and we've taken it off them this year.

"I'm sure the rivalry will continue as we move forward. It's a great achievement for everyone at this club and I don't think it will sink in for a while.

"We've built this team on a foundation of character, strength, power and ability and I think that's really shone.

"The fact we've just won the league accumulates all those factors and I think everyone's just relieved our hard work has paid off.

"The stadium felt packed yesterday and the atmosphere was incredible. I was so pleased we could do it in front of our fans, who have supported us through thick and thin since we started."
