Former Manchester City midfielder brings French adventure to an end

Former Manchester City midfielder Daphne Corboz has announced that she is leaving French Division 1 Feminine club FC Fleury 91.

The 26-year-old American-born midfielder has spent more than two years of her career with Les Essonniennes.

With the 2019/2020 campaign having been brought to a premature close in France due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Corboz has taken to Twitter to announce that she is leaving her club.

After spending her youth career playing her football in the United States, Manchester City signed Corboz from Georgetown Hoyas in 2015. The player was a member of the Manchester City side which lifted the FA Women’s Super League 1 title and FA Women’s Continental Tyres Cup in 2016.

Corboz left Manchester City at the end of the 2016 campaign and joined National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) club Sky Blue FC. The midfielder spent one season with The Beez before moving to French club FC Fleury 91 on loan in a deal which was later made permanent.

Since joining FC Fleury 91, Corboz has represented the club in the league on 38 occasions while she has scored six goals. She leaves the Stade Auguste Gentelet after helping her side record a seventh place finish in the Division 1 Feminine in 2019/2020.
