Lucy Bronze is a representative for EE Hope United, a campaign that tries to stop online sexism. She is the only English player in history to have started for both
club and national teams that won European titles. Now that she plays for Spanish champion FC Barcelona, she thinks she is better suited to playing abroad.
After three successful seasons at Olympique Lyonnias, where she won the UEFA Women's Champions League each year, Bronze went back to Manchester City in 2020,
but when her two-year contract ended this summer, she shocked the soccer world by signing with the Catalan club. This summer, Bronze,
Alex Greenwood, and Nikita Parris, all of England, won the UEFA Women's Euro. This made Bronze, Greenwood, and Parris all European champions at both
the club and international level, but only Bronze started in both finals. If she can also win the Champions League with FC Barcelona, she will join Jimmy Rimmer and
Owen Hargreaves as the only English players to win the title with more than one club. She told me it was while we were on the current international break.
"So far, so good. I love training, where I live, the weather, and the fans. The fans are incredible and unlike anything I've ever seen.
So, yeah, I'm just having a great time so far. These Spanish people who play Barca are so smart. They do have a little different take on the game.
Their style isn't quite like what I'm used to. "It was a bit of a mix of how we played in France, but the intensity and intelligence of the football was a step up."
