WSL

Gareth Taylor ‘very happy’ to commit future to Manchester City

By Sports Desk March 04, 2024 81

Manchester City boss Gareth Taylor has signed a new contract with the Women’s Super League outfit running to 2027.

The 51-year-old has been in charge at City since May 2020 and oversaw the team winning the delayed 2019-20 FA Cup final six months later and the League Cup in 2022.

The news of Taylor’s three-year extension comes with City currently lying second in the WSL, level on points with leaders Chelsea, and on a nine-match winning run.

He said in a statement from the club: “I’m very happy to be able to commit to City for another three seasons.

“I think what we’re doing here and trying to achieve is a build and a long-term project of sustainability and success.

“Our ambition was always to be right at the top and we’ve done that. It’s taken a lot of hard work from a lot of people behind the scenes. The players have really bought in to what we’re trying to do and achieve.”

City, whose only WSL title to date came in 2016, have bounced back this season after missing out on the Champions League places with a fourth-placed finish last term. They came second in 2020-21 and third in 2021-22.
