A very brave choice

Georgia Stanway introduced herself to her new Bayern Munich teammates in risky fashion as she opted to sing ‘Sweet Caroline’ as her initiation song.

Stanway joined the German side following her decision to leave Manchester City in the summer and arrives as a European champion after being a part of Sarina Wiegman’s historic squad.

The midfielder played a vital role and was also responsible for one of the goals of the tournament in a 2-1 win against Spain in the quarter finals as the Lionesses ended 56 years of hurt.

England played Germany in the final and won the game 2-1 as Chloe Kelly’s extra-time winner wrote the side into folklore. As with any major international football tournament involving England, Neil Diamond’s famous song ‘Sweet Caroline’ was the soundtrack to victory.

And as she presented herself to her new teammates, Stanway confidently stood on the chair and gave some of her new associates a reminder of the heartbreak they suffered at Wembley Stadium.

In all fairness, it seemed as if Stanway’s new team members were all for it and were more than willing, both clapping and singing along to the song. Stanway herself also delivered an exceptional rendition of the song – one that Mr Diamond himself would be proud of.

Stanway ‘excited’ to join German champions

The 23-year-old has made the move to Germany after seven years at Man City and said she is looking forward to a new challenge off the back of a successful summer.

“I’m so excited! It just feels right,” she told the club’s website.

“It feels great to now be able to share the news and my excitement with the world. I can’t wait to get started and play for such a well-known club.

“It just felt right from the very first conversation. I was absolutely convinced and my instinct told me that I belonged here. FC Bayern has very big ambitions and I really admire that.”
