United's captain, Katie is a goalscoring midfielder who swapped Turin for Manchester when signing for the Reds.
Zelem came through the United youth system before joining Liverpool in 2013, aged just 17. A year later she made her first-team debut and was voted the club’s Young Player of the Year in her first season, as Liverpool won the WSL. Zelem has experienced joining a newly-formed team before, when she signed for Juventus in 2017. Despite enjoying her time in Italy, she couldn’t turn down the chance of returning of returning to United after a year on the continent. One of the most technical players in last season's Women's Championship, Zelem showcased her ability to unpick even the most resilient of backlines notching up 11 goals from 23 appearances in all competitions. Katie's contribution on the pitch towards United winning the Championship title saw her win Player of the Month in March 2019 and the inaugural Women's Player of the Year award and she was named club captain by Casey Stoney after the departure of Alex Greenwood.
