In ‘What Ballers Wear’, we link up with the most exciting players in the women's game and catch a vibe with them while they dive into their wardrobes before flexing their coldest fits. Next up, we meet one of the game's biggest midfield maestros: Keira Walsh.
Keira Walsh is known as one of the coolest midfielders in the game. The 25-year-old has the ability to control the pace of a match with a single pass. Her through-balls can cut through the length of the pitch and the opposition’s defence in mere seconds. Since making her senior club debut in 2014 at just 17, Walsh has celebrated a ‘double-century’ with her childhood club Manchester City, and has won three FA Cups, four Continental Cups and one WSL title. The 2019 She Believes Champion bagged the inaugural Arnold Clark Cup earlier this year, beating Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas and her Spanish side in the process. Having recently clinched the final Women’s Champions League spot with City, Keira Walsh is looking to once again make her mark on club football’s biggest competition, but not before she tears things up on home soil at this summer’s UEFA Women’s Euros.
KW24 is a baller who’s wise beyond her years, something many - and rightly so - have often praised her for. Her calm nature and cool-headedness when on the ball is something she’s renowned for, but there’s a lot more to Keira Walsh than her on-the-pitch antics. VERSUS sat down with the Rochdale Rocket for our latest instalment of ‘What Ballers Wear’ to find out what role she thinks fashion plays in football, how she defines her own sense of style and who are the players setting trends off the pitch with their fits.
