Kim Little cannot wait to get back to competitive football.
Our club captain was sidelined with a foot injury in February but recently returned to full training, and has played a key part in our pre-season friendlies.
"I had surgery in February and I've obviously been rehabbing most of the time during the pandemic, being away from the club," Little said.
"I came back into pre-season ready to go with the team, so I've just been progressing my fitness and getting back to the team training, the football aspect and the contact. I'm in a good place and I'm ready to go.
"We had quite a few injuries just before the pandemic. The squad was a little bit limited in terms of numbers but now obviously with that time away from football, we've all been able to recover well and come back into training to be ready to play.
"It's been great to be back in with the girls and to be training with more numbers and everyone fit. I'm looking forward to having that depth in the team now. I think it puts us in a much better place now for the start of the season and especially for the Champions League."
