Greenwood on her future ambitions with City

Alex Greenwood didn’t waste time when asked what her priority was after signing a new three-year contract extension with City: ‘I want to win the league’.

Greenwood has enjoyed a successful spell in the sky blue of City, winning the Women's FA Cup in 2020/21 and the Continental Cup in 2021/22, added to her triumph for the Three Lions at Euro 2022 this past summer.

But the classy defender is eager for more – and believes she’s at the perfect club to deliver those honours.

She said: “I want to win the league. I want to compete in the Champions League. I want to win the Champions League.

“I have really high standards of myself and I know this club has really high standards of what we achieve.

“I would be sitting here lying if I said any different.

“But I set my goals really high and they’re what I want to win while I’m here.”

Reflecting on her favourite moments so far at City, who she joined in September 2020 from Olympique Lyonnais, the concept of winning is never far from the mind.


She added: “I’ve got a few. I think winning the FA Cup and the Continental Cup stand out for themselves, because I want to win trophies and I love winning. So that for me is important I think.

“Every year has been quite different, for so many reasons.

“I hope I have so many more memories to talk about in the future, but at the moment for me, it’s being successful and winning trophies.”
