Former Manchester City striker returns home to Anderlecht

Former Manchester City striker Tessa Wullaert has rejoined former club RSC Anderlecht, seven years after initially leaving the Centre National de Football Euro 2000.

The 27-year-old spent a year with The Purples between 2012 and 2013 as she netted 10 goals in 27 appearances for the club.

RSC Anderlecht have today revealed on their official club Twitter account that Wullaert has returned to the club. The player was a free agent after her contract with former club Manchester City had expired. Wullaert had been strongly linked with a move to the Belgian side in recent months.


During her time in England with Manchester City, Wullaert found the back of the net of six occasions in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. The striker’s time at The Academy Stadium was often frustrating with Wulleart having been named amongst the Manchester City substitutes on no less than 10 occasions. The Belgian international did win both the Women’s FA Cup and FA Women’s Continental League Cup with the club.

Wullaert will play top level football in Belgium this season for the first time in five years. After leaving RSC Anderlecht in 2013, the forward enjoyed two successful years with Standard Liege where Wullaert scored 34 goals in just 51 outings, impressive form which earned her a move to German giants VfL Wolfsburg..
