Three-time UEFA Women’s Champions League winner returned to the Academy Stadium in September 2020.
The England star moved back to her home country following the conclusion of her contract with Olympique Lyonnais, bringing the curtain down on a trophy-laden three-year spell in France.
Born in Berwick-upon-Tweed, the full-back started her career with Sunderland – coupled with a brief spell in North Carolina – before two-year stints apiece with Everton and Liverpool, winning successive FA WSL titles with the latter.
City was Bronze’s next port of call in 2014 however, and during her three years with the Club, she played an integral part in the team’s double winning campaign of 2016.
Her own efforts during that season meanwhile saw her named PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year, FA WSL Players’ Player of the Year and Manchester City Women’s Player of the Season.
It was during her first spell with City that she also began to flourish on the international stage with England, and after helping the Lionesses to a third-place finish in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, she earned a spot in the tournament’s All-Star Squad.
Departing Manchester in August 2017 for Lyon, success continued for the right-back as she helped the team to three consecutive UEFA Women’s Champions League successes and Division 1 Feminine league titles, alongside two Coupe de France Féminine victories and one Trophée des Championnes.
Awarded the title of BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year twice and a place in the FIFA FIFPro Women’s World 11 on two occasions, she was also named UEFA Women’s Player of the Year in 2019 and then TheBest FIFA Women's Player of the Year in 2020.
She represented Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics before undergoing knee surgery, which ruled her out of domestic action until December of the 2021/22 season.
Has been an ever-present since her return, having earned her fourth selection in the FIFPRO World XI in January, and helped City to our fourth Conti Cup triumph in March 2022.
