Tessa Wullaert Tessa Wullaert


Tessa Wullaert joined City from Wolfsburg on a two-year contract in June 2018.

Wullaert, Belgium’s all-time leading goalscorer, wears the number 25 shirt.

The midfielder started her career at SV Zulte Waregem, where she played for four years having come through the club’s youth ranks, before moving to Anderlecht in 2012 after the formation of the BeNe League, a joint venture involving teams from both Belgium and Holland.

It was while she was with Anderlecht she collected her first piece of silverware, the 2013 Belgian Women’s Cup.

But after one season she joined Standard Liege and again lifted the Belgian Women’s Cup. Her second season was even more successful as she won her first BeNe League title, finishing as top scorer with 18 goals.

She moved to German side Wolfsburg in 2015 and enjoyed huge success, winning three-consecutive DFB-Pokal Cups and the 2017 Bundesliga title.

She made her full international debut in 2011 against Russia and is now the country’s greatest-ever goalscorer with 39 goals in 71 appearances.

Her maiden campaign in Manchester has earned deserved acclaim - the midfielder producing a string of impressive displays.

Wullaert clinched her first trophy with the Blues in the Conti Cup penalty-shoot-out win over Arsenal in 2019 and added a FA Women's Cup winner's medal to her collection just a couple of months later.
