Joe Montemurro has the opportunity to secure his third piece of silverware as our head coach on Saturday when we face Chelsea in the Continental League Cup final.
The Blues have beaten us twice already this season in the Women’s Super League, but our head coach is confident we will exact our revenge.
“There’s always a motivation, especially in these big games,” Montemurro said. “Obviously the other team we’re playing against have unfortunately beaten us twice this year, so it’s a great opportunity to right the wrongs.
“In the second game, which was probably the more evident game in terms of their power and ability to come out of the blocks, obviously they got the better of us in the first 20 minutes. They were powerful in that phase and we just weren’t able to bounce back, but we’re prepared for this one.
“We love our cup finals. It’s what we play for and it’s what we enjoy in the season. It’s what being a professional footballer and being in the professional game is all about. It’s another opportunity to showcase two fantastic teams and another opportunity to play some great football on a great stage.”
