[Manchester City boss Nick Cushing will leave the club in February to join New York City FC as their new assistant manager] I would like to thank City Football Group and Manchester City for giving me the opportunity to manage our women’s team for the past six years. Making the decision to leave has been incredibly difficult given the fantastic players and staff that we have here and the incredible success that we have achieved together - it isn’t one that I have taken lightly. We’ve had an amazing six-and-a-half seasons and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with everybody – I will be extremely emotional to leave, but I’m very excited for my next role within the City Football Group. Linking up with New York City and Ronny is a brilliant opportunity and I’m really looking forward to working in the MLS.

[The development of players is one of Cushing’s stand-out attributes, and something he prides himself] People think that we’ve won a lot of trophies, which we have, but we’ve had so many England senior debuts. The likes of Lucy Bronze, Izzy Christiansen, Georgia Stanway winning PFA Player of the Year as well while we’re here. We’ve achieved a lot, but we have to challenge everybody at the club
My challenge now is to go and be a better coach, support Ronny, to go and push New York to be a successful team. Hopefully, I’ll come back with one of the teams, whether it’s the women’s team or the men’s team or another team in the [City Football] Group, as a head coach in the future. But as a better coach

[Cushing signs off from Man City after stunning spell of success] Thanks for never slamming me in the press – and don’t batter me if it goes wrong in New York! It’s never a right time, feeling-wise, to leave. It’s onto the next chapter, the next journey, and the players and staff will continue this success
[When asked why he thinks so many young players have thrived] Trust, I think. Allowing them in their early years to make mistakes. We’ll always have that process of making sure that we get, or that we try to get, the best young British talent. It’s dead easy to go out and buy the best player, everybody in the world wants to do that. We’ve done it in a way that we believe is the right way. We’re top of the league with that recruitment
Caroline Weir had two years at Bristol and Liverpool where she lost every week. We put huge responsibility on her to be in our team and win – and she’s delivered. It’s about spotting potential and giving them the opportunity and the trust to go and win

[Jess Park’s ready. She’s ready to play] The problem for Jess is people like Laura Coombs, Tess Wullaert, Jill Scott, Georgia Stanway are pushing as well. She’s got to be patient and we’ve got to find a solution for her because when we brought Georgia Stanway in in 2015, it was a different squad, so it was easier for her to get through and find her pathway.
