Dutch midfielder Marthe Munsterman is back on top of her game following a difficult season with Everton in which the player’s first team minutes were restricted.
The 27-year-old twice-capped Dutch international spent the 2017/2018 campaign with Everton after joining the Merseyside club from FC Twente.
In moving to England, Munsterman ended a 10-year association with FC Twente where she had graduated from the club’s youth ranks to make over a century of senior appearances. Life in the FA Women’s Super League was not all that easy for the midfielder with Munsterman swiftly returning to her homeland where she joined Ajax in 2018.
During her one-season spell with Everton, Munsterman made just six league starts. She was named as a substitute on 12 occasions in the FA Women’s Super League and her stay on Merseyside will largely be remembered for her second half cameos. Munsterman’s frustration at the lack of starts can be summed up by her poor disciplinary record which saw her booked on three occasions, cautions which all came in games which she did not feature for the full 90 minutes.
Since returning to The Netherlands, the grass has certainly been greener for Munsterman. The midfielder won the KNVB Women’s Cup with current club Ajax last season while she has almost been an ever-present for the Dutch club in the Eredivisie Vrouwen during the last two seasons.
After a tough time overseas, life is now looking a lot brighter for Munsterman. Once football resumes in The Netherlands, the player will be keen to add to the two Eredivisie Vrouwen winners’ medals which she picked up from her time with FC Twente while she will be hoping to build on her two senior appearances for her country.
