Thank you KB: Bardsley's best bits

In City's final home game of the 2021/22 FA Women's Super League season, we bid farewell to a true legend.

Iconic goalkeeper Karen Bardsley has decided to hang up her gloves the end of the campaign, having enjoyed a trailblazing career for both Club and country which has helped to inspire the remarkable rise of the women's game.


City's second signing as the Club turned professional, KB has played an integral role in our glittering success, playing her part in eight trophy triumphs in her eight-and-a-half years at the Club.

She was an influential figure between the sticks in our 2014, 2016 and 2019 Continental Cup successes, saving two penalties in the shoot-out win over Arsenal at Bramall Lane, has lifted three FA Cups and conceded just four goals in our FA Women's Super League title win.

As positive an influence off the pitch, she is beloved by all of her teammates and will continue her legacy, inspiring the next generation for many years to come.

Charismatic and enthusiastic, she has collected countless memories throughout her spell in Manchester - both off the pitch and on it.

We look back on just a small selection of her special memories at the Club in the video above...
