Two players to look out for this season for Man Utd Women

The Football Manc Cave are picking out two Man United Women who should stand out to fans this season.

It’s clear that the Women’s World Cup this year has had a huge influence on women’s football as a whole. There are so many more fans of the sport now and young aspiring women who have been inspired to follow their dreams. Not only has it influenced the fans, but it’s also influenced officials as Man United vs Man City women, which is the first game of the season for the Manchester rivals, will be held at the Etihad Stadium.

Now that people’s interest has grown on the women’s game, fans will keep up with transfer news more and the players in general. With this in mind, here are two players who you should look out for in Casey Stoney’s squad…

Jackie Groenen

The Dutch midfielder had a great World Cup campaign and has decided to join the Manchester side after gaining interest. She’s 24 years old and has previously played for Chelsea, so she has a little bit of experience in the Women’s Super League which is what this newly promoted Man United team need.

She featured in all seven games for the Netherlands out in France this summer and showed exactly what she’s worth. You may remember her name from when she scored the winner against Sweden in the semi-final. She has recently given an interview with her views on the season ahead that you can read here. She will be out to prove herself to the other English clubs, and to her teammates so keep an eye on her this coming season.

Abbie McManus

Another player who only signed for the reds this summer. She has been with Man City for years and now says she’s in the “right colour” after signing for Man United. She was also included in Phil Neville’s side when the Lionesses competed in the World Cup. The 26-year-old also did an interview upon her arrival with the club, saying she’s excited to be playing in a historic derby between the two Manchester sides.

I could have picked many players for this article, however, I’ve gone with two new signings who will be able to show experience in the Super League.
