Sam Kerr was crowned the PFA Players’ Player of the Year following her extraordinary season in the Women’s Super League with Chelsea.
Kerr finished as the top scorer in the WSL with 20 goals as Chelsea lifted the title, their third in a row while she was named in the PFA’s WSL Team of the Year. The Matildas skipper also netted in Chelsea’s FA Cup final triumph.
“I do a lot as a player, sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn’t, but I think you have to see yourself in those moments,” Kerr said in a statement.
“I just believe in myself honestly. Just lots of confidence that in the 90th minute or whatever it is, that the team will give me the ball and rely on me.
“Knowing that my team trust me gives me loads of confidence. I love those big moments – that’s what I live for as a footballer.”
