Manchester City forward Janine Beckie has said quarantining for 14 days before being allowed to train with the Women’s Super League club again ‘wasn’t ideal’.

Beckie is from Colorado and had to go into self-isolation when she returned to the UK.

She told BBC Sport: "I didn't have any symptoms, I felt great and I just wanted to get back to things so it wasn't ideal but I got through it. It was a long two weeks but it gave me time to get over my jet lag which was good!"

The 25 year-old added she feels safe in England due to the protocols put in place by the club.

"These little things could get frustrating if you let it frustrate you but at the end of the day, I'm just so thankful that the club are taking extra measures to make sure that nobody in our bubble gets it," she said.

"That's a credit to the time, resources and money the club are putting into testing, gloves, masks and everything anyone could need to be safe. There's an extra level of awareness and commitment to keeping the environment safe."

Man City will be back in action in the WSL in September as the league looks to start the new season.
