I don’t require a lot but when I do, I’ve asked here and there for little things and she’s always the first one to help me and go above and beyond for all of us players.
That relationship is really important to me, I think it’s nice to respect your coach on the field but also off and have that respect for one another.
Last season was hugely successful for you. You’re the only female footballer to win the Golden Boot in three different leagues on three different continents. How proud are you of that achievement?
I’m not going to lie, it’s nice when I do win them but that’s not my main goal at the start of the year. It’s a nice reward, but if I won golden boot after golden boot and no trophies, it wouldn’t be that rewarding to me.
So that’s why last season winning the golden boot and winning the league was really rewarding because finally it meant something.
How much would it mean to win the treble for last season if you win the FA Cup?
It would be the icing on the cake for me after a successful year.
The year ended with a little bit of a bad taste in our mouths after the Champions League final, so to get however many trophies we got and to cap it off with a treble would be amazing.
How excited are you to share this news of your new contract with the fans?
I’m just excited, especially after the Covid year and now welcoming them back to Kingsmeadow. It’s been such a buzz having them back.
I’m really proud to play for Chelsea and I feel our fan base at Chelsea is special. You see the same faces around Kingsmeadow, so for me I just want to make up for lost time. More goals and more trophies!
