Pien Meulensteen, a Sky Sports analyst, is the daughter of a former Manchester United assistant manager. Since graduating from the University of Salford, the Dutch-born journalist has worked for some of football’s top broadcasters.

Pien also works for ITV, the Premier League, and DAZN’s Women’s Champions League coverage, in addition to Sky Sports.

She has also appeared as a reporter on Soccer Saturday when she is not commentating on Premier League play.

So far this season, Pien has given coverage from Anfield and the King Power Stadium.

Pien was born in the Netherlands before relocating to England, the daughter of former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen.

As a result, she is proficient in both English and Dutch, and she has previously worked for Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport.

She began her career on MUTV, covering the Red Devils’ women’s squad, after studying broadcast journalism at university.

Pien eventually became a member of the club’s Premier League matchday squad, both on location and in the studio.

She was a part of ITV’s coverage of the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand earlier this summer, commentating on matches.

Pien’s employment has also required her to attend significant events when she is not commentating on them, such as last season’s Europa League final in Budapest.

She often updates her 19,600 Instagram followers with pictures and snaps from around the grounds.

Pien also uses social media to document her trips across the world, both for work and for pleasure.

Meulensteen’s father has two stints with United, the first as reserve team manager from 2001 to 2006.

He later worked as a coach at Old Trafford until becoming Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant, a position he held until Fergie’s retirement in 2013.

Meulensteen is now Australia’s assistant manager, ten years after leaving United.
