Spanish midfielder Vicky Losada signed for City on a two-year deal in July, 2021.
The 30-year-old moved to Academy Stadium after a hugely successful career at Barcelona.
Born in Terrassa, Catalonia as Maria Victoria Losada Gomez, the midfielder joined Barcelona’s youth set-up as a teenager and has since enjoyed a trophy-laden career with the club, winning six league titles, seven Copa de la Reina trophies, eight Copa Catalunyas plus a Supercopa Feminina and UEFA Women’s Champions League apiece.
Losada also enjoyed brief stints at Espanyol (2007-2008), Western New York Flash (2014) and Arsenal (2015-2016), winning a league and cup double with the latter in the FAWSL.
Whilst with the Gunners she was also named in the PFA’s WSL Team of the Year in 2015/16 as well as scooping the Supporters’ Player of the Season accolade.
Initially named as Barcelona’s captain in 2013, she assumed the position on her return from London and held the honour until her recent departure.
On the international stage, she boasts 64 caps for Spain and 13 goals since her debut against England in a 2-2 draw back in June 2010, while she has also represented Catalonia on a handful of occasions.
Ahead of the upcoming 2021/22 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season meanwhile, Losada will return to the English game and will don the #17 shirt.
