Mary Earps spoke to the media in the mixed zone at Wembley Stadium after the Red Devils FA Cup win on Sunday.  Here is what United’s goalkeeper said.

Earps response to being asked about celebrating by spraying champagne over her teammates whilst they were having a photo was that it is “just important to enjoy it, it is really special to win here, and all been working for this for a long time, so yeah why not spray everyone with champagne.”

After not conceding nor having that much to do during the final, Earps noted it is “tough to get a clean sheet in a final, the girls were brilliant in front of me, we managed the game well on a hot day, and we got what we deserved, so really proud of the girls.”

With Wembley being sold-out for the final and all the signs for and fandom around her, Earps was asked if she can take all that in? 

“I don’t really know what to make of that, but it is so nice, something I am trying to take in and it is a big responsibility trying to inspire” Earps concluded.
