An exciting time - Katharina

An exciting time - Katharina - 30 May 2008 - Women's Football NewsKatharina Lindner hailed Glasgow City's Scottish Women's Premier League title success as a team effort, with an even contribution from the whole squad.
Glasgow clinched the title on Sunday with a 2-1 victory over rivals Hibernian and Katharina told Women's Soccer Scene: "It was one of the most exciting ways to win it.
"It has been a really long season, we have been ahead since Christmas even though Hibs always had games in hand.
"The race was always building up to the game against Hibs, which was the second last match, and we were over the moon when the final whistle went."
The match against Hibernian proved to be an eventful one, as recalled by Katharina. "It was a good first half but the tension and importance surrounding the game always takes over. We had a player sent off five minutes into the second half and the quality of the game went down as a result, but we managed to score a winning goal with five minutes left.
"It was really nerve wracking and everybody felt that throughout the whole game, especially in those last five minutes."
The Championship also means that Glasgow will play in next season's UEFA Women's Cup. "We played in Europe three years ago and lost all three games that time," says Katharina. "Getting back into Europe was one of the main incentives for the team as we have improved since then and want to compete with these teams.
"No team from Scotland has managed to reach the Second Phase as yet and we are all determined to become the first to do so."
Katharina also reserved praise for her manager, Peter Caulfield. "We brought in a couple of new players during the summer and it proved to be a good mixture. Peter has been with the club for nine years and we have done particularly well this year as the quality in Scotland has improved in that time. Peter is delighted and looking forward to competing in Europe, as we all are."
German striker Katharina has tasted success in her home country in the past but regards this season's achievement amongst the best of them. "It's been an exciting time for me as it is my first title in Scotland," she says. "We won the Cup two years but this is more exciting. I won the league in Germany a few years ago with Frankfurt and, with them winning the UEFA Cup, it's been a good weekend overall!
"The team at Glasgow has two internationals but they are good team players in general. The way we play as a team is probably our strongest asset, we complement each other quite well."
Next season, Glasgow will be setting their sights on a repeat success but Katharina admits it will not be an easy task. "There are a lot of young girls coming through and the quality us getting better across the board," she says. "Celtic finished third and strengthened quite considerably during the season, Edinburgh are also improving so whereas, not so long ago, there were only two teams in the frame, there will be more teams challenging now.
"The majority of our squad have already signed on for next season so that is a big boost for us. We have made a link up with Swedish side Orebro, who played us in a friendly recently and we are going over there to play them before the start of the season. The future is looking good from our point of view."
