Arsenal left-back Steph Catley has been named the PFA Player of the Year in her native Australia. Catley joined the Gunners from Melbourne City this summer and is considered one of, if not the best left-back in world football.
Catley staved off competition from Sam Kerr and Arsenal teammates Caitlin Foord and Lydia Williams to win the prize for the first time in her career. The 26-year old captained Melbourne City to a W-League Premiership and Championship double in 2019-20 before joining up with former Melbourne City coach Joe Montemurro at Arsenal.
Catley missed Saturday’s 4-0 win over Spurs with a tight calf. Arseblog News will be speaking to Joe Montemurro on Wednesday afternoon and will seek clarification on whether she will be available for Thursday night’s FA Cup semi-final away at Manchester City. You can read our interview with Steph from earlier this month here.
