Teigen Allen returns to Melbourne City FC!

Teigen Allen returns to Melbourne City FC!

Melbourne City FC can today confirm the return of experienced defender Teigen Allen for the upcoming 2020/21 Westfield W-League season. 

Allen has made 112 W-League appearances, including 13 matches for City as part of the club’s championship winning team in 2016-17. 

Since making her W-League debut in 2009, Allen has established herself as one of Australia’s best full-backs and has 40 Matildas caps to her name. 

Allen was also part of a Sydney team which did the double in 2009 and won another premiership with Melbourne Victory in the 2018-19 season. 

She has also spent time overseas, playing in the NWSL in America in 2014 and in the Norwegian top flight in 2017. 

Melbourne City FC Director of Football said: 

“Teigen is a versatile and experienced defender who has been with our club previously so is well versed in our playing style.

She is a great professional who is technically adept and well suited to our way of playing. We are really pleased to have a Maltilda like Teigen who is still ambitious and looking to keep challenging and improving herself choose to return to an elite football program like ours.”

Teigen Allen said: 

“I want to become the best footballer I can without taking shortcuts and I want to purely prioritise football. 

“I believe City has created an environment over the past years where the players can be a full time footballer and not revolve the training schedule around anything but what it will take to get the best out of the team. 

“Success is in City’s blood and I want and will give everything I have to play my role in the team to my best ability and help City have another successful season.”
