Jill Scott has returned to Manchester City after a loan season at Everton Women. In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports’ Charlotte Marsh, she stated that it was good to return.
Man City is now aiming for success in domestic politics after four years of being runners-up at the WSL.
Scott explained that some of the football played by this team last season was “some of it”, speaking prior to City’s Champions League defeat.
It’s amazing to see the team’s talent from an outside perspective. Maybe you don’t pay attention and just keep going day-to–day. It is worth believing in this talent, it’s there. This team can be challenging for anyone.
According to Gareth Taylor, the girls have really loved it. It’s different when new managers arrive. They’ll have different tactics.
It’s great that there’s so much detail about the pitch. Everton taught me a new style of play, and that is the best thing about football.
As the season progressed, it became clear that Gareth had certain goals for the pitch. It was difficult to put them into practice immediately. You could also see more of Gareth’s patterns in the play after Christmas and other things.
As with any job, it’s normal to have a transition period after you’ve been with a manager for some time. But I believe the girls did a great job. We know that they won the FA Cup, which guaranteed Champions League football. But we know we need to keep pushing and strive for more silverware.
