Liverpool lands a familiar face when the 2nd summer signing arrives – Liverpool FC

Liverpool FC Women have completed the signing of Belgian international Yana Daniels.

The 29-year-old winger returns to the club after two seasons with Bristol City Women in the Super League for women.

She had previously spent the 2018/19 season with the Reds in the WSL after coming from Bristol.
Daniels has significant international experience scoring seven goals in 44 appearances with the Belgian Red Flames.

LFC Women manager Matt Beard, who worked with Daniels in Bristol last season, said: “Yana is first and foremost a good player. She is a little different from the players we have in the front positions at the moment.

“Yana can get out of line, she is good in the air, she is a very technically gifted football player, and she can create and score goals.

“This is a unique football club, and Yana’s experience of being here before and understanding the pressure, and what it means to be a footballer in Liverpool, is something else we took into account.

“She was excellent to me in Bristol and she’s a great person too.”

Daniels himself was in no doubt about returning to LFC Women after a few years away.

“It feels good to be back! I enjoyed my time in Bristol City and it was a tough end to the season there.

“The style that Matt plays just suits me, I like it and I just feel comfortable with the way he wants to play.

“To come back here and try to help place this club where it belongs, and Matt’s philosophy just suits me. I think he can achieve something great here with his ability as a manager.

“I look forward to meeting all the girls. There are still a couple from a few years ago when I was here so it feels like home and I’m excited to meet the new players. ”

Daniels is the second signing of the summer window for LFC Women after the arrival of striker Leanne Kiernan.
