Meet Chelsea Ladies signing Jackie Groenen, arriving from German side FCR 2001 Duisburg ahead of the new Women’s Super League season.

Groenen is a 19-year-old Holland youth international who made 55 Bundesliga appearances for Duisburg, scoring 14 goals, and is also eligible to represent Belgium – where she was raised.


She said:

I want to develop my game and the opportunity at Chelsea gives me the chance to live my passion and play and train with top players every day.

I am confident that together, the team and I will achieve our goals and I am excited to be joining the FA WSL for a new start in my young career.

The set up at Chelsea Ladies, the club, team and the staff are the ideal fit for me and have the same high standards I expect. I am looking forward to getting started.
