Indian team striker Ngangom Bala Devi has won the AIFF Women’s Player of the Year Award for the third time in her career. The prolific striker has already won the award in 2014 and 2015.

Bala Devi currently plays for the Scottish club Rangers. She remains the only Indian female footballer to have signed a professional contract with a European football club.

Bala Devi signed Rangers last summer. She scored the first goal for the first team last December and made history. Younger Manisha has won the ‘Emerging Player of the Year’ award.

“I would also like to thank my coaches – both at my club at Rangers and the national team, as well as all the coaches I have played under in the past. A big thank you also to my family and all my teammates for all the support,” said Bala Devi.

“I arrived in Scotland last year, just before the global shutdown had started, and acclimating to a new place in such conditions was extremely difficult,” she added.

“But with their help, I’ve been able to focus on the things that matter most and keep myself in top shape, both mentally and physically,” she said.
