Along with Sky Sports, Pien also works for ITV and the Premier League, as well as being part of DAZN’s Women’s Champions League coverage.
When she is not commentating on Premier League action, though, she has also appeared as a reporter on Soccer Saturday.
Pien has already provided coverage of matches from Anfield and the King Power Stadium so far this season.
The daughter of former United coach Rene Meulensteen, Pien was born in the Netherlands before moving to England.
As a result, she is fluent in both English and Dutch, allowing her to work for Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport in the past.
Having studied broadcast journalism at university, she began her career on MUTV, covering the Red Devils’ women’s team.
Pien later joined the club’s Premier League matchday team both on location and in studio.
Earlier this summer, she was part of ITV’s coverage of the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, commentating on matches at the tournament.

Her work has also seen Pien attend other major events even when she is not commentating on them, including last season’s Europa League final in Budapest.
With 19,600 followers on Instagram, she regularly treats her fans to selfies and snaps from around the grounds.
Pien also documents her travels around the globe on social media, both from her career and when enjoying a holiday.
As for her father, Meulensteen has had two spells with United, first working as their reserve team boss between 2001 and 2006.
He later returned to Old Trafford as a coach before becoming Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant, remaining in the role until Fergie’s retirement in 2013.
A decade on from leaving United, Meulensteen is currently the Australia assistant manager, a role he has held since 2018.
