Batlle is United Women’s Player of the Year
Ona Batlle has been named Manchester United Women’s Player of the Year for 2020/21, following her selection for the award by team-mates and coaching staff.
It’s a fitting reward for the defender’s impressive first season with the club, during which she has made 19 appearances in the WSL and two in the Continental Cup.
Batlle arrived last summer after a two-year spell with Levante and became the first Spaniard to play for our women’s team.
On signing for the Reds, Ona told club media: “I’ve been waiting a long time for this. I am looking forward to getting started with my new team, developing myself as a player and achieving great things with this club.”
After that victory, the Spain international declared herself “proud of the character and ambition of my team and this great club. It is my desire to continue working with them.”
Congratulations on your award, Ona, from everyone at Manchester United.
